Informal event aims to promote dialogue, enhance police/community relationships

NAPERVILLE, Ill. — Naperville Police Chief Robert Marshall invites the community to Naperville’s next “Chat with the Chief” on Thursday, November 17. This informal meet-and-greet with the Chief and members of his senior staff will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the lobby of North Central College’s Madden Theater at the Fine Arts Center, 171 E. Chicago Ave.

“I was really pleased with the community’s response to our first chat,” said Chief Marshall. “I’m eager to continue making myself and other department decision-makers makers available to our community to answer any and all questions they may have about the department, our policies, our values or any other topic.”

At “Chat with the Chief,” residents should not expect a presentation or formal agenda, but rather informal conversation and light refreshments in a relaxed atmosphere.

Chief Marshall intends to host a “Chat with the Chief” quarterly in various locations throughout the city. Anyone is welcome to stop by at any time during the two-hour event. November’s location – North Central College’s Madden Theater lobby – is conveniently located next to the Central Parking Facility in Downtown Naperville.
