Residents, Business Community, and Visitors:
Riverside Police Department is committed to serving our residents and visitors. In light of the rapidly evolving situation as a result of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) the police department will be making some modifications to the services we provide. These modifications are for the safety of our employees and the citizens we serve. Our goal is to try to prevent or contain the spread of COVID-19, especially to those in the high risk category.
As we have witnessed, this is an ever-changing situation and we must have the ability to adapt with these changes. Staying informed is our best tool moving forward. Continue to monitor updates from The Cook County Department of Health (https://www.cookcountypublichealth.org), the Illinois Department of Public health (http://dph.illinois.gov/), and the Center for Disease Control (https://www.cdc.gov).
The listed protocols will go into effect beginning March 17, 2020, at 8:00 AM and will remain in effect until further notice.
Please remember we are committed to serving our residents, business community, and visitors, but in order to do this on a continual basis we must try to ensure our officers and staff remain healthy. We are taking these extraordinary steps as we are experiencing extraordinary times. We must try to minimize health risks to employees and our community, especially those most vulnerable to the coronavirus.
If you have any questions feel free to contact me. Thank you.
Chief of Police
