The 2016-17 Crime Prevention Calendar was recently released, featuring artwork from 40 area students.
Mayor Steve Chirico and Police Chief Bob Marshall honored those students in a special ceremony at city hall.
“The value is the crime prevention tips that the students come up with and that everybody has on their refrigerators or in their homes or somewhere in their house, so people can look at these crime prevention tips and really take a very proactive role in reducing crime and doing the right thing,” said Chief of Police for the City of Naperville, Robert Marshall.
Covering topics ranging from stranger danger to online safety and the buddy system, this year’s calendar was distributed free of charge to 22,000 students.
One winner’s artwork was picked from every elementary school in District 203, 204 and from five local private schools.
This is the 30th year the Naperville Police Department has produced the Crime Prevention Calendar.
