Park Ridge Citizens Patrol

The Park Ridge Citizens Patrol is a not-for-profit, community-based volunteer organization consisting of 32 active members.  Established in 1979, the original goal of the group was to aid in crime prevention by patrolling the community for the purpose of observing and reporting suspicious activity and potentially dangerous situations.  This goal has expanded over the years, and the group now also helps to maintain the safety and security of our City by supporting other city organizations with their events in the form of traffic and crowd control, as needed.

Members of the Citizens Patrol donate their time by patrolling the community during evening hours, and assisting during storms, railroad crossing problems, floods, power outages, automobile accidents, crime scenes and other catastrophic events.  In addition, the Citizens Patrol continues to assist and support the Park Ridge Police Department and the City with the following activities and events:

Taste of Park Ridge                           Harry O'Brien Walk/Run

Maine Township Cops for Coats       Advocate LGH Adult Downs Syndrome Walk/Run
