News Release - River Forest Police Department

September, 27, 2023

The River Forest Police Department is proud to announce a partnership with the Georgetown University Law Center for Innovations in Community Safety (CICS) to implement the Active Bystandership for Law Enforcement (ABLE) Project.

ABLE teaches officers how to successfully intervene and protects those who do intervene. It also authorizes and empowers law enforcement to intervene in another officer’s action regardless of his/her rank. The River Forest Police Department adopted the ABLE Project training at the request of Chief James O’Shea with the support of the Village Board of Trustees.
