On behalf of the men and women of the Ridgewood Police Department, I welcome you to our website.
The Ridgewood Police Department is a dynamic, full-service police organization committed to providing the highest level of service and protection to the Village of Ridgewood. Each of our police professionals is dedicated to making a positive difference in our community. At the forefront of our efforts is our philosophy of community policing and citizen safety. We practice community-based policing and value our partnerships with citizens, merchants and community organizations.
We believe that no matter what you’re trying to accomplish, you can do it better with shared thinking. By becoming partners with us and sharing those ideas, you become a real part of our team and serve to improve the overall quality of our community. Open communication with our citizens is encouraged and we actively seek your enthusiastic community involvement in working toward our number one priority of making the Village a safer place.
The Ridgewood Police Department is dedicated to promoting professionalism, service and trust to the community and leadership for other law enforcement agencies. In this spirit, the Ridgewood Police Department is accredited through the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA).
It is my desire that through this website you will be better informed about upcoming police/community events, community crime trends, and the many services and opportunities our agency provides. The Ridgewood Police Department will remain dedicated to identifying existing and emerging needs and to developing problem-solving solutions to address them. Together, we will find opportunities and solutions to enhance our quality of life.
