Naperville Residents Invited to “Chat with the Chief” on National Coffee with A Cop Day

Informal event aims to promote conversation and enhance the police/community partnership

Naperville Police Chief Robert Marshall invites the community to chat with him and members of his senior staff over coffee on National Coffee with A Cop Day – Wednesday, October 2.

This informal meet-and-greet is part of the Naperville Police Department’s “Chat with the Chief” series and will be held from 9 to 11 a.m. at the McDonald’s located at 1520 N. Naper Blvd., Naperville.

“National Coffee with A Cop Day is all about bringing police and citizens together to discuss community issues and build relationships, so it makes sense to hold our next Chat with the Chief on that day,” said Chief Marshall. “We thank McDonald’s for hosting us and look forward to meeting with community members to discuss whatever is on their minds, whether it’s neighborhood issues, traffic/parking complaints, safety concerns or even our police budget.”

At “Chat with the Chief,” residents should not expect a presentation or formal agenda, but rather informal conversation in a relaxed atmosphere. Residents are encouraged to stop by at any time during the two-hour event, which will include complimentary coffee, courtesy of McDonald’s.

“Chat with the Chief” is hosted several times each year in various locations throughout the city. For more information on Chat with the Chief, visit
