In 2017, the Rockford Police Department launched its first two Resident Officer Community Keeper Houses. The houses are a part of the department’s community policing initiatives aimed to cultivate and strengthen relationships within the community. Officers reside in the neighborhoods they are sworn to protect and serve. Officers work daily, managing their schedule based on the needs of the neighborhoods.
