Honoring Mayor Pradel

The A. George and Patricia Pradel Safety Town of Naperville is devasted about the passing of Mayor Emeritus George Pradel (aka Officer Friendly).  Safety Town would not be here today without George’s unwavering vision and his wife Pat’s unwavering support.  We are grateful for the endless love and countless hours he poured into Safety Town and the entire city of Naperville year after year.  The legacy he has left is priceless, and we are humbled to be able to continue teaching safety in his honor.  We may even need to start our weekly Safety Town camps with his iconic “HELLOOOO NAPERVILLE”!  Our deepest condolences to his children and their families.
