The Riley County Police Department utilizes social media in an effort to keep citizens informed and educated on local and state laws, current events and emergency notifications when applicable.
We believe social media helps to improve the quality of life for our citizens by creating a direct method of communication with your police. To create a social environment that is welcoming to all citizens, as part of our social media policy, all posts or comments containing offensive or perceived to be offensive language will be removed at the discretion of the RCPD Administration.
RCPD utilizes when available, profanity filters that automatically blocks posts which use words and phrases marked as offensive by members of the community. RCPD and its employees reserve the right, without notice to hide, delete, mute, block, ban or unfollow any persons or posts containing: false information, profanity, derogatory language, sexual content, threatening messages, advertisements, political messages, defamatory words, abusive remarks, harassment, hatred, off-topic comments, or anything that could violate the legal rights of others and anything that is promoting illegal activity as perceived by the administration. Our site is not monitored 24/7, if you would like to report posts to our team, please send us a message, and we will respond to it as quickly as possible. Due to staffing, not all direct messages, page tags or questions can be answered; however, we will make an effort to respond to as many as possible.
We ask that you please not report crimes via our social media pages. If there is an emergency please call 911 immediately. If you would like to report a crime or see suspicious activity, please call our non-emergent line to report it as soon as possible at (785) 537-2112. You can also call Crime Stoppers to report information on past crimes at (785) 539-7777.
We encourage our community to engage in meaningful, respectful conversation with fellow citizens on our site. Posting on our social media sites (including but not limited to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Nextdoor, Snapchat and Linkedin) constitutes acceptance and understanding of the above terms.
