Citizens Appreciate Public Safety (CAPS)

Citizens Appreciate Public Safety (CAPS) is a Naperville community group that recognizes Fire and Police Department personnel for their contributions to the City. Throughout the year, Naperville residents are asked to nominate public safety employees who have displayed an interest in Naperville’s citizens in a manner above and beyond the call of duty, individuals who exhibited a genuine concern for the welfare and well-being of all Naperville citizens. Two annual presentations—one in the fall to recognize personnel in the Fire Department, and one in the spring to recognize individuals in the Police Department—are hosted by the CAPS Board of Directors and generously hosted by Meson Sabika.

Nominations are accepted year round for exemplary service by members of the Naperville Police Department and the Naperville Fire Department.
