Crime Tip Email

The Riverside Police Department has established a “Tip Email” to allow you to email in and leave a message with information on suspected criminal activity, drug information, and crimes that have occurred. You may email “Tips” anonymously!

Email address:              crimetips@riverside.il.us

Your “tip” should include your suspicions, what you believe is taking place and where and when the activity took place or is taking place. Dates and times are very helpful. If person(s) and / or vehicles are involved, please include: names, physical descriptions of persons or vehicles and license plate numbers.

This email should not be used for emergency calls, crimes in progress, or other incidents that would require immediate attention by an officer.

You may also fill out this form or email Deputy Chief Leo Kotor, or call him at 708-447-2127, ext. 261 to submit a tip.  You may remain anonymous.
