As many new college freshmen are getting ready for move-in day on college campuses across the nation, the Naperville Police Department wants to be sure that parents are sending off their young adults with the necessary knowledge and skills to keep themselves and their property safe.

Department personnel will present “Safety for the College-Bound Student” at 7PM on Thurs., July 20, at the 95th Street Library, 3015 Cedar Glade Dr. The seminar for college freshmen and their parents combines drug and alcohol education with critical personal safety information.

“This is a great opportunity to learn how to be safe while on campus and away from home,” said Mike Garofalo, a crime prevention specialist with the Naperville Police Department. “We live in a very safe community and because of that our children can develop a false sense of security. This class will help students learn strong crime prevention strategies and make them aware of some of the dangers of campus life and how to safeguard themselves.”

Part 1 / Drugs, Alcohol and the Law

The presentation has two distinct areas of focus. The first part of the program will educate students and parents about drugs, alcohol and the law. Garofalo adds, “Students may be subjected to temptations and challenges that they haven’t yet been taught how to deal with. This class will talk frankly about making choices and understanding what the consequences may be: legally, personally, and academically.”

Part 2 / Personal Safety

The second portion of the presentation will concentrate on personal safety. Garofalo said the Department wants students to start their college careers armed with the knowledge and skills needed to keep themselves and their property safe. “We want students to learn how to protect themselves and to know how to avoid becoming a victim of crime,” he said.

Questions about the presentation may be directed to Crime Prevention Specialist Mike Garofalo at (630) 420-6667.
