Riverside Police Officers love to have kids stop by the station for a visit! Unfortunately, sometimes circumstances have our young friends here because there is no one to care for them. It is often stressful for children in those circumstances. With that in mind, we remodeled our lobby area to accommodate more adults and to entertain children. We increased our seating and added a television which displays public information such as the current the current, “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign, photos of the RPD in the community, upcoming events, etc. For older kids we added an Xbox video game console and Netflix. For our younger guests we added a small table and chairs, board games, coloring books and more.
We would like to thank the Riverside Police Officers that worked on this project. Thanks to their hard work, the labor costs for this project were not passed on to the residents of Riverside.
We hope that our efforts will provide everyone a more pleasant experience!
