We are so proud of our dedicated dispatchers and telecommunicators, who completed another round of Charity Dress Down Days and presented a $775 check earlier this month to this period’s chosen charity, Save-A-Vet. Save-A-Vet representatives – along with Paddy, a retired bomb detection K9 from the Department of State – visited our dispatch center twice to meet and thank as many employees as possible for their donation. Save-A-Vet takes retired Military & Law Enforcement working dogs deemed unsuitable for adoption by their agencies (for reasons such as health, training and work history) and place them in secured facilities owned by Save-A-Vet throughout the country. They then hire disabled veterans that meet the organization’s special criteria to live with and care for these other forgotten soldiers, according to the group’s website. Charity Dress Down Days are an initiative of the City’s Communication Section to give back to the community and enhance a team atmosphere among employees. Staff members can wear approved “dress down” apparel twice a month in exchange for a $5 donation to a charity voted on by all those participating. The Communications Section is comprised of the Naperville’s Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP), which provides emergency and non-emergency radio and telephone communications for all public safety departments, and City Dispatch, which serves the Departments of Public Works and Public Utilities.

These safety talks are just too much fun! We love working with kids and teaching them how to be safe!

PRESS RELEASE: St. Patrick’s Day has long celebrated the roots of millions of Americans with Irish ancestry. All too often, however, the celebration can turn deadly because of impaired driving. This year, if you’ll be drinking alcohol, the Naperville Police Department has some advice for you: “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over!” “Naperville Police will be on patrol this St. Patrick’s Day, so make sure you obey the law,” said Naperville Police Sgt. Derek Zook. “Don’t drink and drive, and don’t let your friends do it, either. Help us make zero fatalities a reality in Illinois.” In addition to looking for alcohol- and drug-impaired drivers, the Naperville Police Department will be stepping up seat belt enforcement, particularly at night when seat belt usage rates are lowest. Sgt. Zook said always designating a sober driver and not letting friends drive drunk are two simple steps to help avoid a tragic crash or an arrest for Driving Under the Influence (DUI) of drugs and/or alcohol. Here are a few other important reminders: If you are hosting a St. Patrick’s Day party: • Remember, you can be held liable and prosecuted if someone you serve is involved in an impaired driving crash. • Make sure all guests designate a sober driver in advance or help arrange ride-sharing with other sober drivers. • Serve lots of food and include lots of non-alcoholic beverages at the party. • Keep the phone numbers for local cab companies handy and take the keys away from anyone who is thinking of driving drunk. If you are attending a St. Patrick’s Day party: • Designate a sober driver before the party begins and give that person your keys. • If you do not have a designated driver, ask a sober friend for a ride home, call a cab, ride-share, sober friend or family member to pick you up or just stay where you are and sleep it off until you are sober. • Never let a friend leave your sight if you think they are about to drive drunk. • Always buckle up. Pedestrians are at risk, too. If you are walking, keep an eye out for cars. Designated drivers: Be alert for impaired walkers who may not obey street signs. The St. Patrick’s Day “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” initiative is funded by federal traffic safety funds from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and is administered through the Illinois Department of Transportation.

Applications are being accepted through April 20 for a seasonal intern with Animal Care and Control. For more information, visit

Protect your home from burglars with a few interior, exterior and landscaping tips #ASaferNaper • Install outside lights and keep them on at night. Pay special attention to entrances, porches and yards. • Use inexpensive timers or photo electric cells to automatically turn lights on and off and dusk and dawn. • Create the illusion that someone is home by using timers on lights and/or leaving the TV on. • Trim shrubbery and trees so doors and windows are visible from the street. • Don't let your tree be a ladder. If there is a second floor, prune nearby trees so a thief cannot use them to reach second floor windows. • Don't leave ladders or tools outside; they can assist a person in gaining entry. • Draw all curtains/shades at night to prevent viewing from the street.
