The first phase of Naperville police Chief Robert Marshall's summer-enforcement plan for downtown is about to take shape.
As the school year ends, the department's school resource officers, including one sergeant and eight officers, will be deployed to patrol downtown on foot, bicycle or in a squad car.

The unit will be supplemented by patrol beat officers, the Naperville Park District police, North Central College security, the Naperville Community Radio Watch and the liquor liaison investigator.
Marshall has said the mission of the downtown detail is to address liquor-related concerns, disorderly conduct calls, public urination, traffic issues and other crimes. Increased bar inspections also will be a priority.
When classes resume in mid-August, the officers will return to their assigned schools.
