Welcome to Police Beat 316. Officer Michael Cremins is the primary contact and Beat Coordinator of 316. Officer Cremins has been patrolling streets of Skokie for 17 years on various shifts, currently assigned to the Patrol Division on dayshift.
Beat 316 is a small heavily-populated section in the middle of Skokie. The western border of Beat 316 is the old railroad right-of-way along Terminal Ave., the southern border is Main Street, the eastern border is Kenton Avenue and the northern border is Church Street.
The CTA’s Yellow Line (Skokie Swift) Dempster Station shuttles commuters to and from this Beat. An additional Skokie Swift parking lot entrance is now open and located just behind the new Target store. Check out the multi-use bicycle/walking path that leads from Dempster south to the Village of Lincolnwood. This will eventually be the Skokie Valley Trail which will link Waukegan at the northern end and Chicago to the south. The Dempster Street Corridor and Skokie Swift make this Beat very accessible.
Officers working Beat 316 respond to calls for service at the many apartment complexes, two-flats and four-flats, which are the majority of residences within this Beat.
