Naperville Residents Invited to ‘Chat with the Chief’ on Sept. 7

Naperville Police Chief Jason Arres invites the community to chat with him and other members of the Naperville Police Department on Thursday, Sept. 7.

This informal meet-and-greet is part of the Naperville Police Department’s Chat with the Chief series and will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. at Royal Food Court, 1570 W. Ogden Ave., Suite 105, near Patel Brothers.

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.

“One of my favorite things to do as Chief is get out and talk to community members,” said Chief Arres. “I find it so beneficial to get to know our residents better, understand what’s important to them and listen to their concerns. The informal nature of Chat with the Chief really leads to some great conversations, and I’m always grateful for the opportunity to chat with new people and answer their questions.”

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
