The Warwick Police Department realizes the public’s interest in determining the safety of Warwick’s City Park.

Since this investigation is in its infancy, a determination of whether this incident is a random act of violence or the victim was specifically targeted would be premature.

To ensure the safety of all our citizens who frequent the park, the Warwick Police Department will increase patrols and maintain a visible presence.


The citizens who utilize the bike/walking path should be extra vigilant. Please report any suspicious activity to the Warwick Police Department at 468-4200.

The Warwick Police Department strongly recommends adhering to the city ordinance regarding public facilities and hours operation. The park will remain closed during the period of sunset to sunrise daily, which currently means from approximately 8:00 PM to 5:30 AM.
