Chief of Police Message

This Police Agency has embraced the "Community Policing Philosophy" in an effort to provide the highest level of service to all its citizens. By reaching out to include the community in our endeavors, this agency can move forward with a vision and purpose. Professionalism and competence are barometers in determining our success. However, the main factor in evaluating our performance is the feeling and attitude our citizens have regarding the Police Department. We shall forever strive to deliver assistance at its most productive.

Best Practices Committee

On November 30, 2017, community leaders and the law enforcement community in the St. Louis area gathered together to discuss methods to improve policing across the region.

The Chief of Police participated in discussions within the St. Louis Area Police Chiefs Association (SLAPCA) to bring regional consistency to police departments.
