The Wheaton Police Department will bring back its popular Neighborhood Roll Call events throughout the summer starting June 6. These family friendly outdoor community gatherings are designed to connect residents with the officers who serve them and share current safety information.
Each Neighborhood Roll Call will start at 6:30 p.m. with a presentation by the Wheaton Police Department. Officers will discuss what’s happening in the neighborhood, talk about crime trends, and present safety demonstrations, followed by an opportunity for attendees to ask questions. In addition, officers will provide fun activities for children.
During the first two years of this program, the Police Department partnered with the Wheaton Park District and School District 200 to host events at Wheaton parks and schools. This year, many of the events will be outside places of worship. The events are open to everyone in the community, and residents are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and their neighbors, too.
“We’re looking forward to bringing back this program and meeting with the community again this summer,” said Sergeant Angela Smith, who leads this program for the Wheaton Police Department. “It has proved to be a meaningful way for our officers to engage with residents and share relevant information about their neighborhood and their police department.”
The Wheaton Police Department appreciates the many faith communities who are allowing us to host events at their sites. The June events will take place:
Tuesday, June 6, 6:30 p.m.
St. Michael Catholic Church
310 S. Wheaton Ave., lot on the west side of West Street
