Police Department

Welcome to the home of the Park Ridge Police Department!  We hope you enjoy our website.  I have been Police Chief since November of 2007 and a member of the department since 1987.   During my tenure, I have witnessed many changes in our community and our department.   We have always taken great pride in providing the residents of our community with the finest police services possible. Our officers are always researching advances in technology to improve the services we can provide.  This website is an example of the pride and expertise members of our department deliver on a consistent basis. 

We are entering the Fall and Winter seasons and with them come important safety messages.  Burglaries are continuing in our area. Make sure to activate your security systems and lock all doors and windows.  Remember to lock the doors of any vehicles left in your driveway.  Outdoor lighting also helps deter criminal activity.  We also provide vacant home checks for anyone going away on vacation.  Officers will stop by and check your house while you are away.   Stop down at headquarters and fill out a vacant home card.  I want to remind all of our residents to make sure to check the Community Policing section of our website. There are helpful hints to secure your home and we also offer to have an officer come to your house and complete a Home Security Survey.   Many other helpful hints are also found in this area. 

The start of the Fall and Winter season means dangerous driving conditions.  Wet leaves, ice and snow create hazardous driving conditions. Be aware of your surroundings when driving and don’t use cell phones to text or call.  My officers will be enforcing these violations on all of our roads.  Speeding and careless driving will not be tolerated.   

Thank you again for taking the time to visit our cyber home.  If you have any questions about the site or want to contact me with any questions or concerns feel free to send an email to
