About the Riverside Police Department

The Riverside Police Department was founded in 1896 and has grown from a small frontier town police force to a large metropolitan police department with 345 sworn police employees and 206 non-sworn employees.  Our agency is renowned nationally for its leadership in creating innovative approaches to critical law enforcement situations.  Several tactics developed by the Riverside Police Department, such as the High-Risk or Felony Traffic Stop, have been adopted as the standard throughout the country. 


The department is a team-oriented agency that combines a close partnership with the community and a policy of enforcement oriented police work to build a stronger, safer city.  The Riverside Police Department strives to continue this tradition by looking for dedicated men and women to provide fresh ideas for the future.


Police Headquarters is located at 4102 Orange Street in downtown Riverside.


The headquarters building houses the Office of the Chief of Police, Administrative Division (Personnel and Training), Records Bureau, Communications Bureau, the Emergency Operations Center.


General and Special Investigations offices are located in other facilities in the east side of Riverside.


The Field Operations Division, General and Special Investigations, and Traffic Services are divided between our facilities at 8181 Lincoln Ave and 10540 Magnolia Avenue.


Riverside Police Department detective Christine Keers is the Co-author of The Riverside Killer.  According to a book synopsis, “Between 1986 and 1992, Riverside County, California became the scene of a series of savage sex murders that shocked the nation. Nineteen prostitutes were raped and sexually mutilated by a killer who left his grisly trademark on each victim. For almost 6 years he terrorized the city, leaving a trail of false leads, few clues and even fewer suspects.”


According to David Lockeretz, “For someone who lives in southern California (particularly the Riverside area, where the crimes took place) this is an interesting and frightening book to read, and even people who have never heard of Suff before will likely feel revolt at the heinousness of his crimes. No matter how one judges the prostitutes he murdered, it is hard not to recoil at the mention of a light bulb stuffed deep inside one of the naked bodies post mortem and of other sadistic details.”
