Focus on Safety – 24 days of safety


Hard to believe it’s December! This year in particular seemed to fly by. Maybe this comes with age, or perhaps we all felt a breath of fresh air as our lives had a bit more “normalcy.” As we close out the year and look forward to 2022, it is important to remember many of the different ways to keep ourselves and our family members safe.

This December, the Naperville Police Department’s Safer Naper campaign will provide daily seasonal safety tips in the form of “24 Days of Safety.”

Need some winter driving or safe online shopping tips? We have you covered! Want to learn more about how scammers are using QR codes to disguise malicious links? We’ll teach you about that, too. Need to catch up on the latest regarding gift card scams? We have you covered with the latest prevention tips on these and many other topics.

Also, let’s not forget there are many different ways to keep ourselves safe. Our mental well-being often gets overlooked with all the holiday hustle and bustle. The holidays can also be a particularly challenging time of year for so many. Our social workers will take a few days of the campaign to provide tips and resources for prevention and education on how to take care of ourselves and our mental well-being.

Visit the Naperville Police Department online (www.naperville.il.us/asafernaper), on Facebook (www.facebook.com/napervillepd) or on Twitter (www.twitter.com/napervillepd) to catch up and keep up with the daily holiday-related safety tips.

Until next year… Stay Aware and Stay Safe.
