“The police are the public and the public are the police; the police being only members of the public who are paid to give full time attention to duties which are incumbent on every citizen in the interests of community welfare and existence.”
-Sir Robert Peel
St. Charles County, Missouri's third most populated county, is proudly served by the St. Charles County Police Department (SCCPD). Approximately 373,000 residents within 587 square miles and 800 miles of public roads are protected by SCCPD 24 hours a day.
Our mission, for every member of SCCPD, is to consistently perform their duties and to find ways to affirmatively promote, preserve and deliver a feeling of security, safety and quality service to members of our community.
One of the Largest Agencies
We are one of the largest in the State of Missouri and the largest law enforcement agency in St. Charles County. We are comprised of 130 commissioned law enforcement professionals and 57 civilian personnel with duties ranging from traffic enforcement to neighborhood directed patrols to piloting our Metro Air Support helicopters.
We are directly responsible for the safety and security of residents residing in the unincorporated areas of the county, and also provide specialized and supplemental services to municipal police departments upon request.
We also provide contract patrols to the cities of Augusta, Weldon Springs Heights, St. Paul, Flint Hill, Portage De Sioux, and West Alton. Additionally, we are responsible for providing full-time law enforcement patrol services to the municipalities of Dardenne Prairie and Weldon Spring.
Throughout the St. Charles County Police Department, we work to provide professional and responsive law enforcement services to St. Charles County. Please contact us at anytime.
Chief of Police
We are so grateful for the countless expressions of support you've extended to us over these past weeks. Thank you for your encouragement. We've also received your requests to do more as a community. Many of you have asked to make contributions to our department or our officers. Please consider joining or making a contribution to The BackStoppers to show your support of law enforcement. This organization supports the families of local first responders—police officers, firefighters and volunteer firefighters, and publicly-funded paramedics and EMTs—affected by tragedy, whether they are killed or catastrophically injured in the line of duty. Your support will help recognize the tremendous sacrifices police officers make daily, and help their families if there's ever a need.
