The Riverside Police Department is staffed by full-time and part-time, APOST certified officers. 

A certified drug detection K-9 partner can often be seen on patrol, always ready to assist in searching for illegal substances or soak up the attention of interested youngsters.  A major focus for our officers is the "generation of tomorrow," our young people, especially our children. 
















We work closely with Riverside Fire & Rescue Service in responding with them on medical emergencies and fire calls to provide assistance where needed.


Having several miles of Interstate 20 passing through our city limits as well as residents and visitors enjoying our many miles of Coosa River shoreline truly makes us the playground of the Coosa. Being "people centered" focuses our attention on the needs of the residents of Riverside and those who pass through our borders. Sure, we enforce the law, but we are here to serve and protect the citizens and guests of our city in any way we can.
