Safety First

Promoting community safety is always our number one goal, and nobody does it better than the Geneva Police and Fire departments. While fighting crime and putting out fires is important, community education is another key component to making sure our residents have a "safety-first" mentality.

Let's Not Race Into Fall

Posted on September 18, 2023 at 11:06 AM by Kevin Stahr

As we approach the fall season, the Geneva Police Department continues to receive an increased number of speeding complaints, especially within residential areas of our City. I want to provide a few quick reminders to help enhance community safety:

  • The posted speed limit in nearly all residential areas within Geneva is 25 mph;
  • Pedestrian traffic is notable, especially in shopping districts and near our school buildings;
  • Numerous special events during the coming months will lead to increased pedestrian and vehicular traffic, especially downtown;
  • Do not use your phone unless it is hands-free;  and
  • Be considerate of your neighbors and of those neighborhoods that you drive through.

Excessive speed and distracted driving are two of the leading causes of traffic crashes. Please join us by engaging in safe driving habits to ensure the fall season is as safe as it can be for our residents and visitors.
