Citizens Appreciate Public Safety (CAPS) is a Naperville community group that recognizes public safety personnel for their contributions to the City. Each year, Naperville residents are asked to nominate public safety employees who have displayed an interest in Naperville’s residents in a manner above and beyond the call of duty and exhibited a genuine concern for the welfare and well-being of all Naperville citizens.
Commemorative Brick Program
The CAPS Commemorative Brick Program allows individuals to honor a friend, remember a loved one, commemorate a milestone or simply pay tribute to the Naperville Police and Fire Departments.
500 8”x8” bricks have been installed in Naperville’s Public Safety Plaza, which is located between the Aurora Avenue Police Department and Fire Department Administration buildings. Individuals and organizations can now order a brick to be engraved with up to six lines of text, each containing up to 13 characters per line (punctuation and spaces are considered characters), for a cost of $250 (tax-deductible). Those who purchase bricks may request placement of their engraved brick on either the Police or Fire side of the Plaza, and every attempt will be made to accommodate the request
