We have talked to the RPD a few ago in reference to releasing some information on some recent incidents.

As you know Rockford PD and Cherry Valley have been becoming more transparent these days.
And I want to say thank you for the transparency!
We asked the RPD to release information on the following incidents.
- Scene at RBI bar approx. 11:30 pm last night. RPD said it was just a domestic issue, so we will not be posting anything on it.
- Winnebago County Corrections officer firing her gun at a 12 year old and 2 adults at the Walmart on W Riverside. Click Here For Info
- Shooting victim on Bell School over night. http://rockfordscanner.com/shooting-victim-on-the-east-side/
- Also asked if they would please release the dash camera footage of the RPD escorting the vehicle they claimed was excessively backfiring last night. Click here for that info.
RPD said we will have to file a FOIA on that one. RS has filed the FOIA request on it.
Thanks to the RPD transparency,
RPD responded back and said they planned on releasing everything later on today sometime.
