Naperville Police Offer Two Residential Burglary Prevention Forums

Forums aim to educate residents, deter crime and make Naperville ‘A Safer Naper’

The Naperville Police Department is offering residents two opportunities this month to learn first-hand from police department staff how to safeguard their homes from would-be burglars. Residents who attend either of two public forums scheduled in March can expect to learn a number of burglary prevention tips and to participate in a question and answer session.

“We live in a safe community, but not a crime free community,” said Police Chief Robert Marshall. “Crime prevention is everyone’s responsibility, and we look forward to educating residents at these forums on how to reduce the likelihood of becoming victims of burglary.”

The first forum will be held from 1 to 2 p.m. on Monday, March 19 at the 95th Street Library, 3015 Cedar Glade Dr.

The second forum will be held from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 28 in Council Chambers at the Naperville Municipal Center, 400 S. Eagle St.

The forums are part of Naperville Police Department’s “A Safer Naper” campaign, which features a new safety theme each month to educate residents on how to prevent crime and enhance their overall safety. The campaign for March centers around residential burglary prevention and calls upon residents to take necessary steps to reduce the likelihood of becoming targets.
