Located at 1350 Aurora Ave., the drop box is available to the public from 7AM to 8PM on weekdays and from 10AM to 6PM on Saturdays, excluding holidays.

Citizens are invited to enjoy coffee and conversation with members of the Naperville Police Department at one of three Naperville locations on National Coffee with a Cop Day – Wed., Oct. 5.
Naperville Police will be present at each of the following locations from 8AM to 10AM to chat with residents and answer questions:
- McDonald’s, 1376 N. Route 59 (southeast corner of Route 59 and Brookdale Road)
- Starbucks, 1043 S. Washington St. (northwest corner of Washington Street and Gartner Road)
- Dunkin’ Donuts, 2880 95th St. (southeast corner of Route 59 and 95th Street)
“National Coffee with a Cop Day is all about bringing police and citizens together to discuss community issues and build relationships, so it makes sense to hold our next Chat with the Chief on that day,” said Chief Jason Arres. “We’re excited to have locations spread out across Naperville to hopefully give more people the opportunity to come discuss whatever is on their minds, whether it’s neighborhood issues, safety concerns, body-worn cameras or just to say hi.”
Informal meet & greet series began in 2016
This informal meet-and-greet is part of the Naperville Police Department’s Chat with the Chief series that dates back to 2016.
During Chat with the Chief, residents should not expect a presentation or formal agenda, but rather informal conversation in a relaxed atmosphere. Residents are encouraged to stop by at any time during the two-hour events.
