Focus on Safety – Making Naperville ‘A Safer Naper’


The Naperville Police Department’s Safer Naper campaign continues in 2024 to inform you of timely crime prevention and safety strategies.

Each month, the department will focus on a different topic along with some background information about the NPD sections and staff that are involved with that month’s theme. (For example, learn about the financial crimes unit while also learning how to spot and avoid scams.)

Visit www.naperville.il.us/ASaferNaper each month for information and tactics you can use to help protect your family in 2024 and to get to know a little more about how the men and women of the Naperville Police Department keep you safe in those different areas of focus.

The campaign starts off this January with general information about the department and how to contact NPD when you need help or information from any of its staff.

  • The Naperville Police Department is divided into three divisions – patrol, investigations and administrative services – each providing specific and critical services to the community.
    The patrol division responds to calls for service and provides routine patrol and traffic enforcement.
  • The investigations division is responsible for conducting follow-up investigations of crimes, implementing community programs and crime analysis.
  • The administrative services division is made up of civilian employees in the areas of emergency communications (PSAP), records, information technology and accreditation.

Reaching these different sections is as easy as calling 9-1-1 in an emergency or (630) 420-6666 for non-emergency issues. There are also times, however, when texting 9-1-1 or utilizing the department’s online reporting system might also be useful. Learn all this and more during the month of January at www.naperville.il.us/ASaferNaper.

Until Next Month… Stay Aware and Stay Safe.
