The Park Ridge Police Department extends our deepest condolences to the family, friends and colleagues of Champaign Police Department Officer Chris Oberheim who was tragically shot and killed in the line of duty in Champaign, IL.

Chief of Police Anthony Cobb Issues Statement on Fallen Officer:

It is with great sadness and a heavy heart I announce Champaign Police Officer Chris Oberheim, 44, badge number 703, passed away due to injuries sustained while on-duty. Officer Oberheim was struck by gunfire while responding to a domestic disturbance. His only intention was to serve, protect and help provide care before he was senselessly fired upon and killed.

Officer Oberheim joined the Champaign Police Department in September 2008 after beginning his career with the Decatur Police Department. A true professional and devoted public servant, Officer Oberheim is remembered for his heroism, bravery, and the oath of office he honorably upheld in his commitment to duty.

The Champaign Police Department, and the entire City of Champaign organization, expresses its deepest condolences to Officer Oberheim’s family, friends and loved ones. I also want to express my care and support for all members of the Champaign Police Department who are mourning the passing of their friend and colleague.

We ask that Officer Oberheim’s family, and other Champaign Police Officers’ and their families’ privacy be respected during this difficult time.

As the springtime unfolds and the weather is nice, the Park Ridge Police would like to offer a helpful reminder as to the current regulations and ordinances for curfew in the Uptown area. Park Ridge Police will have an increased presence in the Uptown area on the weekends evenings to encourage good behavior for large groups of teens gathering. We would ask parents to remind teens to be mindful of patrons in the uptown area and refrain from loitering in large groups and inhibiting the normal flow of pedestrian traffic. The use of bicycles, skateboards, rollerblades, etc. are prohibited on the sidewalks and areas of Uptown and the Pickwick Plaza.

We have had a recent increase in calls from concerned citizens regarding irresponsible pet owners not picking up after their dogs while on public ways. There have been numerous reports of dog waste being left on sidewalks and parkways; please be respectful of the law and other people. It is the responsibility of any person walking a pet to have waste bags or a device for removing animal excrement. You can be cited and fined for the violation of any of the following Park Ridge Municipal Code:

5-8-22 - CONTROL OF DEFECATION
A. It shall be unlawful for any person to fail to have in his or her immediate possession an appropriate device for removing animal excrement whenever such person permits or causes an animal under his or her control to be on property not owned or possessed by such person.
B. It shall be unlawful for any person to fail to remove the excrement left by any animal under his or her control that was deposited on any public or private property not owned or possessed by such person. Excrement that is removed shall be placed in a standard refuse container located upon the property owned or possessed by the person in control of such animal.

MARCH MADNESS RESULTS IN A FRIENDLY RIVALRY AT THE POLICE DEPARTMENT!

Sunday’s historical NCAA basketball game matchup of the Loyola Ramblers vs the Fighting Illini is causing some strong rivalry within the police department. Chief Kaminski has made his support of the Fighting Illini known but he is being taunted by his own Assistant Ingrid Feiereisel who will be cheering for the Loyola Ramblers. We know this rivalry extends beyond the police department. Tell us who you will be cheering for during the big game.

Thank You AJ!

This past Friday we were truly humbled to have the Yefsky family stop by the station to drop off several pizzas for our officers. The idea was AJ Yefsky’s who is making his confirmation this year. For his service project he chose to bring a meal to the police officers in his community.

In 2020, the Federal Trade Commission received over 178,000 complaints of government imposter scams. Of those, 10% said they lost money to a scammer—a total of $174.2 million.

• Report Social Security scams to OIG.SSA.GOV.
• Report other scams to reportfraud.ftc.gov.

Thank you for the call last night to let me know our garage door was open- greatly appreciate you looking out for us!
Park Ridge restaurants have announced their intention to ignore the public health order suspending indoor service? Will the Park Ridge police department be enforcing the law?
Thank you To the Park Ridge Police Department for contacting me about my 9 month old puppy who got out of her grandparents yard!!! (the gate was left open by accident) My previous dog was registered to their house and do to your excellent record keeping you found my phone number and got a hold of me. We would have been been devastated if anything happened to our sweet BettyLou as she already had a broken leg when we adopted her. She got home to her grandparents with your help unharmed and is back with our family. Thank you again for everything you do to make sure everyone including our fury family members continue to stay safe ❤️❤️❤️❤️🙏🙏🙏🙏
Today, September 28, 2020, at 1:41pm, I received a call from telephone number 847 318 5252(see screen shot.) The caller did not immediately identify himself, only saying he is an officer in the Park Ridge Police Department. In a very loud and aggressive tone of voice, the Officer demanded I remove the unfavorable review I left following my disappointing experience at Grand Mongolian Hot Pot (Fakebook, 9.27.2020/yelp, 9.28.2020.) Several times, I asked the Officer for his name; when he finally responded, he rapidly mumbled, identifying himself as Officer Margot or Marvin. I am frankly puzzled as to why a Park Ridge Police Officer would involve himself in this civil matter between a vendor and customer. If the caller was, in fact, not Officer of Margot/Marvin, but an individual claiming to be a Park Ridge Police Officer, I would ask the PRPD to follow-up with the caller 847 318 5252; impersonating a police officer is a crime. Regards, Dr. I. Lelik
Unconfirmed....info just in... PR Officer committed su***de ? Rest In Peace ....

As Americans we have the freedom to assemble but is anyone else concerned about a public event when other cities have curfews?
What is the city of Park Ridge and the Park Ridge Police department doing to train officers to prevent the unequal policing of black and brown citizens and to prevent the killing of unarmed black people so that the next time isn’t in Park Ridge?
Hello, saw on a post on Facebook that Snapchat is circulating a warning for tomorrow for several suburbs: Des Plaines n Park Ridge among them!! It's frightening!! They're threatening to burn down bldgs! Tried sending post but could not copy!
