Periodically the River Forest Police Department creates Crime Alerts to notify our residents about an emerging pattern of criminal activity or to give tips on how to avoid becoming a victim of a crime. These alerts are distributed in a variety of ways. You can sign up to be added to our Crime Alert e-mail distribution list, you can "friend" us on our River Forest Police Department Facebook page or simply check the archived Crime Alerts on this site.
