New Overnight Parking Request Portal

December, 3, 2019

The River Forest Police Department has begun utilizing Frontline Public Safety Solutions online portal to provide an additional way residents can request overnight parking permission. The online portal, which can be found on the Village website or by visiting www.frontlinepss.com/riverforest, is available to all residents.  Requesting overnight parking permission can be done through the online portal or can still be done by calling the police department at 708-366-7125. The Police Department hopes the addition of the Frontline Public Safety Solutions online portal will provide residents an easier and more convenient way to request permission for overnight parking. The online portal can be reached on any cell phone, tablet, computer or device with access to the internet. 

As a reminder, parking on Village of River Forest streets is prohibited between the hours of 2:00 A.M. and 6:00 A.M. (per Village ordinance 9-2-9). Overnight parking is prohibited when there is two (2) inches or more of snowfall on the roadway or when it is determined by the River Forest Police Department that an anticipated weather event may result in two (2) inches or more of snowfall. Requests must be received prior to 2:00 A.M. and any requests made after 2:00 A.M. may be subject to a parking citation.  Each vehicle is limited to a maximum of three (3) nights within a calendar month.  For any special requests and/or requests beyond the three (3) nights within a calendar month, residents can contact the River Forest Police Department at (708) 366-7125.
