A Letter from the Chief

We are a professional department dedicated to providing the highest quality police service to the citizens we serve. Our mission includes:
  • Protecting life and property
  • Preventing crime
  • Reducing the fear of crime
  • Apprehending those who violate our laws
We will provide needed services to the community, while maximizing efficiency today and in the future. Working cooperatively with the public, we will strive to improve the quality of life in the Village of Riverside.

A police organization is guided in its operation by laws, ordinances, procedures, job descriptions and rules and regulations. In addition to legal and administrative requirements, police organizations are powerfully influenced by values, where values are beliefs that guide the organization and the behavior of its employees.

It is the mission of Riverside Police Department to enhance the quality of life through community based policing that provides police services in a fair, conscientious and professional manner.

Thank you for visiting us!
