Resolve to be safer by being informed! Naper Notify is a free notification system that provides Naperville-specific emergency and public safety information directly to you through a phone call, text message, email or smart phone app. When emergencies arise, you’ll be “in the know” with safety information delivered in a way that is convenient for you. The system allows you to set up a personalized profile where you can choose one or more contact methods in addition to any number of locations (home, school, work, etc.) throughout town that are significant to you and your loved ones.
Resolve to be safer by being prepared! Register yourself and your entire family for Smart911, a free service that creates a profile accessible by 9-1-1 call takers nationwide. Anytime you call 9-1-1 from a registered phone number, your profile will display on the call taker’s screen so they have vital information, as well as additional data about your home, family members and pets, immediately available. If you are panicked or otherwise unable to communicate, Smart911 ensures that call takers have the information they need. Before an emergency hits, be prepared and create a Smart911 profile.

Addiction / Drug Abuse Programs
Addiction is a major public health concern in this country, and the Naperville Police Department would like the community to know that we are committed to confronting this problem head-on.
Finding help for addiction can be difficult, especially for those who don't have insurance. That's why we're proud to offer the Connect for Life program, which seeks to reduce the impact of addiction in Naperville by facilitating an immediate connection to treatment for anyone seeking help for their addiction, regardless of financial or insurance status.
Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to misuse and abuse, which, in turn, can lead to illegal drug use. Rid your home of unneeded and expired over-the-counter and prescription medications through the Prescription Drug Drop Box Program.
