Michael Rivas has been Villa Park’s chief of police since Dec. 21, 2020. Rivas spent more than 29 years with the Wood Dale Police Department. He then served as the police chief of Sleepy Hollow in Kane County before coming to Villa Park. In his first few weeks on the job, Rivas has engaged in one-on-one meetings with the members of the Villa Park Police Department. He has also met with various community leaders. “When I meet people, we just have normal conversations,” said Rivas, who is a longtime resident of Lombard. “I’m a husband, a father, somebody who’s in the community. I care very much about what happens, so their interest and their satisfaction is very important.”
