What is CAPS?
Citizens Appreciate Public Safety (CAPS) is a Naperville community group that recognizes public safety personnel for their contributions to the City. Each year, Naperville residents are asked to nominate public safety employees who have displayed an interest in Naperville’s residents in a manner above and beyond the call of duty and exhibited a genuine concern for the welfare and well being of all Naperville citizens.
The CAPS Board comprises residents from the Naperville community that meet to discuss and decide on specific incidents and actions accomplished throughout the year that deserve recognition by Fire and Police personnel. The Fire Department CAPS recognition event is held in October and the Police Department CAPS recognition event is held in May.
