Naperville Residents Invited to ‘Chat with the Chief’ on Dec. 14

Naperville Police Chief Jason Arres invites the community to chat with him and other members of the Naperville Police Department on Thursday, Dec. 14. This informal meet-and-greet is part of the Naperville Police Department’s Chat with the Chief series and will be held from 9:30 to 11 a.m. at Nature’s Best Café located at 1904 Brookdale Road, Suite 104, in Naperville.

At Chat with the Chief, attendees 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 event.

“I always look forward to talking to residents and learning more about how they feel about their safety and our department,” said Chief Arres. “We had great turnouts at the three chats we held earlier this year, and I hope people will find time during this busy holiday season to come out for our final chat of 2023.”

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