Naperville Residents Invited to ‘Chat with the Chief’ on May 25

Naperville Police Chief Jason Arres invites the community to chat with him and other members of the Naperville Police Department on Thursday, May 25.

This informal meet-and-greet is part of the Naperville Police Department’s Chat with the Chief series and will be held from 2 to 4 p.m. at Starbucks, 1200 S. Naper Blvd., near the intersection of Naper Boulevard and Hobson Road.

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 two-hour event, which will include complimentary hot brewed coffee, courtesy of Starbucks.

“Chat with the Chief is really mutually beneficial,” said Chief Arres. “It gives us the ability to get out in the community, learn about residents’ concerns and answer their questions. But residents have also told me how impactful it is to have direct access to me and my staff. Both sides are able to educate each other and learn from each other. It’s a win-win.”

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