PD Press Release Header - 7-17-2019

During 2020, Riverside Police Department officers responded to more than 9,300 requests for assistance and calls for service. 

To maintain a consistent and professional response, the department relies on comprehensive, up-to-date policies.

Recently, Riverside was recognized by the Lexipol Connect program for achieving the Gold level of policy implementation and review 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’s performance on five metrics proven to measure success in policy management. 

“The Riverside Police Department’s excellence in policy and policy training enhances community safety by ensuring consistent, effective response based on national best practices” says Riverside’s Police Chief, Thomas Weitzel. “We're excited RPD is delivering a standard of excellence through our policy efforts that reduces risk for our personnel and those we serve.”

Policy implementation for Riverside is managed by Deputy Chief Bill Gutschick.
