Field Operations

The Field Operations Division is comprised of one deputy chief, three commanders, seven sergeants, six detectives, two school resource officers, thirty-one patrol officers and one social worker.


Patrol Division

The main purpose of the officers working in the patrol division is to prevent crimes and accidents as well as to obtain compliance with City ordinances and state statutes.  While on patrol, the police officer is available to respond to and investigate accidents, enforce traffic laws and parking regulations and prevent criminal activities by being visable and available.

In addition, the Patrol Division continues to build and foster relationships with the business and the community by participating in numerous Community Policing assignments.



The Investigations Division is comprised of one division commander, one sergeant, six detectives,  two School Resource Officers, and one part-time Social Worker. This division conducts compliance checks on liquor and tobacco and inspects establishments that offer massage therapy to the public.  Additionally, the division continues to pursue asset and vehicle forfeitures whenever possible.

School Resource Officer Program

The School Resource Officer Program is a well-established program, which provides each of the high schools with a full-time juvenile officer during the school year. Each officer handles law enforcement related problems, teaches classes and acts as a liaison between the school and the police department.

SRO’s must use their discretion when handling incidents at the school. Although it is not a priority, arrests are sometimes necessary when other options or school consequences are not appropriate.


Police Social Worker

The Police-Based Social Worker functions as a support service to police personnel and as a proactive intervention and interaction service provider to the Park Ridge community. Services include a comprehensive referral service, court advocacy, crisis intervention, assessment and brief counseling. If you are a resident of Park Ridge and you or a loved one are struggling with substance abuse, mental illness, runaway/delinquency of a minor, are a victim/witness to a crime, have grief/loss issues, geriatric issues or concerns or are a victim of domestic violence, contact Geri Silic, LCSW, at 847-384-2137.
