Naperville Police Invite Residents to “Chat with the Chief”

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

Naperville Police Chief Robert Marshall invites the community to Naperville’s next “Chat with the Chief” on Saturday, May 6. This informal meet-and-greet with the Chief and members of his senior staff will be held from 8:30 to 10 a.m. at Panera Bread, 1191 E. Ogden Avenue.

“The thing I’ve come to enjoy most about these chats is that citizens truly drive the conversation,” said Chief Marshall. “I love having the opportunity to get out into the community to simply listen and answer questions. I hope citizens can take a few minutes out of their Saturday to come have a cup of coffee and chat with me and my deputy chiefs.”

At “Chat with the Chief,” residents should not expect a presentation or formal agenda, but rather informal conversation 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 event.
