Community Education and Crime Prevention

The Naperville Police Department recognizes your most important defense against crime is awareness through education and has been continually involved in innovative and comprehensive prevention programming.

Our Community Education/Crime Prevention Specialists work cooperatively with co-workers, schools, community groups, businesses, volunteer organizations and individual citizens to provide effective crime prevention and promote excellent community relations throughout the city. They are an essential element in the NPD’s mission to partner with the community to prevent crime through education and provide greater understanding and cooperation between the citizens and their police department.
