Police presence increased outside Riverside schools
February 12, 2013 (RIVERSIDE, Ill.) (WLS) -- The police chief in Riverside has ordered a new initiative to increase police presence outside schools in that southwest suburb.
Patrol officers are now being asked to complete non-arrest paperwork while sitting inside their police cruisers in school parking lots.
Riverside police say, instead of officers returning to headquarters to complete their paperwork, it's a way for students to see police in a new light.
