Police Department


Message from the Chief

Chief Frank Kaminski

Welcome to the Park Ridge Police Department website. As you explore our site, I hope you will get to know more about the department, its employees and our efforts to serve the Park Ridge community.

The department is committed to a policing philosophy called the PACT – Police And Community Together. Through this philosophy, we as members of the department value developing partnerships, fostering community engagement and working together to solve problems. I encourage you to become part of the PACT. Several ways to become involved are the Citizens Police Academy, the Citizens Patrol, and CERT. These programs offer the opportunity for residents to connect with the police and serve our community.

As your Police Chief and a 30-year resident, I can affirm that Park Ridge is a wonderful place to live and work. I look forward to keeping you informed and getting to know you better, both personally and through this site. Click here to view our organizational chart which depicts our two divisons - Field Operations and Administrative Services. Please explore our website for updates on what's happening in the department. Also check out the newest addition to our website, the Mental Health Resource Guide.
