Volunteers sought for Naperville Radio Watch organization

Naperville police are recruiting residents for the Community Radio Watch volunteer organization.

Radio Watch members are hosting an open house from 9:30-11:30 a.m. Saturday at the police department, 1350 Aurora Ave. Members will answer questions about the program and provide a tour of the station, Sgt. Bill Davis said in a release.

Police in 1982 established the Community Radio Watch with “a group of citizen volunteers who were interested in helping their community,” Davis said. “CRW members receive specialized training from police department personnel, and since its inception, CRW has logged thousands of patrol hours, acting as additional eyes and ears” for police, he said.

‘Making a difference’

Volunteers should be “interested in making a difference in (the) community, and helping maintain Naperville as a wonderful and safe place to raise a family,” Davis said. Volunteers should also want to be “part of a growing, recognized and diverse organization,” be at least 25 years old and live or work in Naperville, he said.

Those interested in attending the open house or joining Community Radio Watch are asked to email the group, at NapervilleCRW@yahoo.com
