Traffic Safety - October

Traffic Safety Merit Badge Workshop

Two identical Traffic Safety Merit Badge workshops will be offered to area Boy Scouts on Thursday, October 3. One will be held from 4 to 6:15 p.m. The second, identical workhsop will be offered from 6:30 - 8:45 p.m. Both workshops will be held at the Naperville Police Department. You only need to attend one workshop.

This Merit Badge aligns well with the educational and awareness campaigns that the Naperville Police believe are important to ensure the safe movement of vehicles, bicycles and pedestrians throughout the city. Additionally, many Boy Scouts are new drivers or will soon be learning how to drive a motor vehicle. This Merit Badge will help Scouts establish good habits early. All necessary requirements for the badge will be completed at this workshop, which will be conducted by members of the NPD Traffic Unit. 

Register for an October 3 workshop:

Register for the 4 - 6:15 p.m. workshop

Register for the 6:30 - 8:45 p.m. workshop
