Mount Prospect police and firefighter/paramedics responded about 7:01 PM Friday to the report of a gunshot victim near Palatine Road and Wolf Road Wheeling, IL. Police and firefighter/paramedics received a report that a victim had a gunshot wound to the hand.

Prospect Heights police also responded about 6:45 p.m. to search the roof at an apartment in the 500 block of Love Drive.

No word on whether the two calls were related. Police were already on the scene of the gunshot wound before firefighter/paramedics arrived.

Prospect Heights police and Wheeling police also responded to the scene.

Cardinal Note: As of June 5, 2013 — up to and including the date of this article — police incidents related to the Mount Prospect Police Department and Prospect Heights Police Department are not reported in real time or within a prompt time period. Police protecting their realm of investigation and police activity, have chosen to use encrypted radios to withhold their police communications, which were previously open to the public and news media via monitoring of public safety scanning radios — with no known negative results locally.

The delayed knowledge or entirely blacked out knowledge resulting from encrypted police communications may protect certain police operations and investigations, but it also puts the public at risk in situations such as when armed and dangerous offenders are at large and when other similar situations occur. In other cases, the delayed or blacked out information inhibits or prohibits the possibility of the public providing early witness accounts before a criminal trail goes cold. Citizens are much more likely to recognize or recall suspicious or criminal activity if they are aware of the criminal incident within minutes or hours of its occurrence. The most serious incident involving dire results would be a trail that is allowed to go cold in the case of child abduction.

The lack of real time information from public police dispatch also weakens an effective neighborhood watch program mostly working to prevent property loss, but also working to prevent possible violent crimes.

Police have alternate ways to transmit tactical, operational or investigative information, while still keeping their main public dispatch channels open for the best balance of public safety and police safety.
