The City of Wheaton and the Wheaton Police Department continue to monitor the situation affecting the general DuPage County area. There have been several peaceful protests in the area and some communities have experienced increased criminal activity in the form of looting. If the Wheaton Police Department identifies a potential threat to the safety of our residents and community, an immediate notification will be sent via social media, email and/or reverse 9-1-1.
Please call your local businesses ahead of time to ensure they are still open and operating before travelling to shop or dine.
If you witness criminal or suspicious activity, the Wheaton Police Department encourages you to get to a safe location and call 9-1-1 for police response.
The Wheaton Police Department will continue to maintain an increased presence throughout our community in the coming days and encourages its residents and community members to stay up-to-date by following the City of Wheaton on Facebook, Twitter (@CityOfWheaton), and email updates.
