PD Press Release Header - 7-17-2019

Last year, Riverside Police personnel responded to more than 9,300 requests for assistance—ranging from criminal investigations to mental health crisis interventions to school security and animal complaints. To maintain a consistent and professional response, the department relies on comprehensive, up-to-date policies. 

Recently, Riverside Police was recognized by the Lexipol Connect program for achieving Gold level for consistently and effectively disseminating policies to officers, issuing timely policy updates as laws change, and ensuring officers are trained on policies. Lexipol is the nation’s leading content, policy and training platform for public safety agencies; the Connect program tracks Riverside Police Department’s performance on five metrics proven to measure success in policy management. 

“Policy – and regularly training on policy – is crucial to the success of the department. We are proud to be recognized by Lexipol Connect for continuously improving professionalism and safety,” says Chief Tom Weitzel. 

Riverside’s excellence in policy and policy training enhances community safety by ensuring consistent, effective response based on national best practices.

Riverside Deputy Chief Bill Gutschick stated, “By using Lexipol policies we are progressive and deliver the highest level of service to our residents. We will continue delivering a standard of excellence through policy efforts that reduces risk for our personnel and those we serve.”

Deputy Chief Gutschick manages the department’s policy development.
