Many Naperville residents got a chance to chat with police over a cup of joe.
National Coffee with a Cop Day on October 4 was a perfect opportunity for Chief of Police Bob Marshall, and other members of the police department to spend their morning with local residents.
They hosted a “Chat with the Chief” at McDonalds on Naper Boulevard as a chance to discuss concerns, or just have a one on one conversation over a free cup of coffee.
“This is a great event and I think it establishes some PR with the public and the police force,” said Naperville resident Phil Gregory.
A common topic discussed were traffic problems in the neighborhoods such as speeding and stop sign issues.
It’s been a little over a year since the first “Chat with the Chief.” Since then, the event has grown and has even seen some repeat attendees.
The chief and department hold a meeting after each one to discuss any issues and concerns the public has brought up.
