Richton Park Police Department News

Today, we remember...

Things are about to get a little hairy around here..... starting November 1st some of our officers have decided to put away their razors for the month of November, they have pledged money that will be donated to the American cancer society to take a walk on the scruffy side. So if you see our officers sporting their best whiskers they are doing it to help make a difference.

If you know who this individual is, please contact Orland Park or Oak Forest police department.

Congratulations to Officer Hedgepeth and all the officers involved.

Now that the cooler weather and frosty car windows has arrived, just a reminder that leaving your car running with the keys in the ignition is not only not a good idea it’s also against the law. We have all ready had one car taken this morning and we certainly don’t want to have anymore. If your vehicle is not equipped with a remote start please stay with your vehicle while warming it up.

This chilly morning we are braving the cool temperatures to escort the annual truck convoy for special Olympics, our area trucking partners have pledged money to participate in this convoy with the trucking company that pledged the most being able to lead the convoy. Just another example of amazing relationships with the public to help support our special athletes all across the state.

Trick or treat hours for this year will be on October 31st from 3pm-7pm

You may wonder why the American flags at your local fire station are flying at half-staff today. This year Sunday, October 7 is National Firefighters' Memorial Day. This is an official national tribute to all firefighters who died in the line of duty during the previous year. 95 firefighters lost their lives since last year’s memorial. Please lower the American flags at your home and business. When you lower your flag this year, you will recognize the brave men and women who died protecting their communities from natural and manmade emergencies and disasters and those who carry on the proud tradition. #RPFD #Supportthethinredline #Richtonparksbravest

Congratulations Deputy Chief Owens on being sworn in tonight to your new position.

October is breast cancer awareness month, we are proud to help spread the word that early detection can help save a life.

We will always support the fighters, admire the survivors and honor the taken... #215and807fightinglikegirls
