Pleasant Ridge Police
About the Police Department
The Pleasant Ridge police engage in community policing and are proud to be part of what makes our community safe, welcoming, and neighborly. Our officers wear body cameras and are required to record all incidents. Our officers are required to take de-escalation, cultural diversity and cultural competency, and communication training to ensure that our police conduct themselves in the most professional manner.
Our police are aware of implicit bias and systemic racism and condemn their disparate impact on communities of color. We are committed to making sure that these issues are not present in Pleasant Ridge.
Police Chief Nowak Retires
Congratulations to Police Chief Kevin Nowak on his well-deserved retirement! Chief Nowak has been a dedicated leader in our community for the past 17 years. His commitment to our department has made a lasting impact, and we are grateful for his service. We send our warmest wishes as he embarks on this new chapter of his life.
The city will be conducting a comprehensive search for our next police chief. In the meantime, Sergeant Rob Ried is stepping up to lead the force as interim police chief.
