Department specific coronavirus statistics will now be included in the Police Activity Report posted weekday on our website. This report will include new positive cases, active cases, and recovered cases.

“We will continue to share updates with the community about positive COVID-19 cases within the department,” said Director Butler. “Transparency and an open line of communication help us serve you better.” 

On September 23, 2020, a Riley County Police Department employee tested positive for COVID-19.  This is the first confirmed case of an RCPD employee since the pandemic started.

RCPD continues to modify and implement enhanced safety measures using recommendations from local, state, and national health experts to protect the public who need us, and our employees.
