Riverside Residents-

The Riverside Police Department wants to facilitate a positive and active relationship with you, the members of our community, who are our most important resource in keeping Riverside safe and secure. Successful crime prevention efforts are accomplished through mutual trust, cooperation, and collaboration between the police department and our residents.  A well informed and engaged community is our best asset in combating crime and solving community problems. The partnership between the police and the community must be founded on trust.

We value input from the community and invite your thoughts and comments concerning what you like about the police department and what you feel may need improvement. I believe that no organization is perfect and understand the need to be flexible and to change as required to best protect and serve our residents.

I have attached a crime prevention report that I submitted to the Board of Trustees on recent crime prevention efforts in Riverside. Your feedback is welcomed at
