Wheaton police host Neighborhood Roll Call July 6

Updated 7/1/2021 1:51 PM

The Wheaton Police Department is taking its roll calls out into the neighborhoods to connect with you.

Prior to the start of each tour of duty, Wheaton police officers gather to report for a roll call, where they are briefed on calls for service in the past 24 hours, emerging crime trends, intelligence information, locations in need of extra watches and more. This is the time for officers to share what has been going on in their assigned beats.


Now, the department is bringing the roll call out into the community where you can meet with the officers who are assigned to your part of town. Officers will be on hand to discuss local issues and concerns about your neighborhood as well as providing tips to keep you and your family safe. Join the Neighborhood Roll Call that is happening in your neighborhood, as the topics discussed will be specific to your area. A map on the city's website at www.wheaton.il.us/rollcall will show you the city's seven police beats and the event happening in your area.

At the Neighborhood Roll Call, officers will also show you how to initiate online requests for city services and register for SMART911, and you can make officers aware of issues directly related to your neighborhood.

The Neighborhood Roll Calls will be occurring at 6:30 p.m. Tuesdays between June and August, with a different location each week. The next Neighborhood Roll Call will be July 6 at Graf Park, 1855 Manchester Road (Manchester Road entrance). The other dates will be July 20 at Brighton Park, 1297 Brighton Drive; and July 27 at Hull Park, 1400 Hull Drive.

Please continue to watch the City of Wheaton's website, Facebook and Twitter (search for @CityOfWheaton to follow the City on Facebook and Twitter) to see when a Neighborhood Roll Call will be coming to your area!
