The Naperville Police Department has a long history of building positive relationships with our school-age population, their parents, teachers, and the community. Members of our department play a significant role not only in the safety of students, but also in their education.

The police department’s Traffic Unit works closely with the City’s Transportation, Engineering and Development department to ensure that students have safe routes to school, while our School Resource Officers (SROs) are responsible for working with school administrators and faculty on developing comprehensive safety plans to ensure schools are safe places for students to learn. Additionally, SROs work to establish positive working relationships between police personnel, school administrators, service agencies, parents and students; to prevent and intervene with youth concerns; and to deter youth from involvement in criminal acts, substance use, theft and violence.
