The Riverton Police Department is excited to celebrate the 4th of July with the Riverton community.

The Riverton Town Days are known for exhilarating fun events, including parades, carnivals, fireworks, and many other attractions, not allowing unfortunate events to transpire. We, the Riverton Police Department, rely on all of you, our valued community members, to play a crucial role in preventing vehicle break-ins and burglaries. This can be done by not leaving firearms or high-dollar items in plain view and ensuring all vehicles are locked while you are enjoying the festivities.

We kindly ask everyone to keep a watchful eye on their children during the parade and other events to ensure public safety. If you notice anything unusual or suspicious, please don’t hesitate to report it. You can approach the nearest officer or call the non-emergency VECC dispatch number, 801-840-4000, for immediate assistance. Your prompt reporting can help us maintain a safe environment for everyone.

The night of the fireworks draws thousands of spectators, and we look forward to this fun evening. We want you to feel confident in your safety, so we assure you that several officers will be present in the park and surrounding areas. We have decided to manage pedestrians and vehicles to free flow naturally instead of providing traffic control at the end of the night, which sometimes causes delays. So, we all need to be considerate and respectful to each other, not only on this day but every day.

As the Riverton Police Department, our primary goal is to enhance the quality of life in our community. We are more than just a law enforcement agency; we are your dedicated partners in safety. Our commitment to data-driven strategies ensures the safety and security of the Riverton community, with your peace of mind as our top priority. We are here to support you and ensure that you have an enjoyable time this year at the Riverton Town Days.
