Police Department

About Us

The St. Charles County Police Department (SCCPD) is the largest law enforcement agency in St. Charles County. The department is comprised of more than 165 sworn personnel and 40 professional staff who provide a range of police and public services to approximately 409,000 residents and businesses within 587 square miles and 800 miles of public roads in the unincorporated areas of the county. Additionally, the SCCPD contractually provides law enforcement services to nine municipalities and actively patrols 18 parks that encompass over 4,000 acres throughout the county. Upon request, we assist other first responder agencies—including municipal police departments, fire, and EMS—in protecting life and preserving property with our specialized and supplemental services, including crime scene investigation, SWAT and the Metro Air Support Unit.

Maintaining safety and providing quality service to our community are key priorities of the SCCPD. We strive to provide professional and responsive law enforcement services to St. Charles County. Our officers are available around the clock to respond to emergencies and citizen concerns. We offer public services and insightful education programs to enhance citizen and business safety, as well as host and attend special events for the entire family.

Thank you for entrusting your safety to us and working in cooperation with us to make our community a great place to live and work.
