A Message from the Chief of Police

Welcome to the official website of the St. Charles County Police Department. We are the largest law enforcement agency in St. Charles County. Our department is comprised of more than 130 sworn and 35 civilian staff, who provide a range of police and public services to approximately 396,000 residents and businesses within 587 square miles and 800 miles of public roads in the unincorporated areas of the county. Our presence further extends into the neighboring cities of Augusta, Weldon Spring Heights, St. Paul, Flint Hill, Portage Des Sioux, and West Alton with contract patrol services. We also provide full-time patrol services to the municipalities of Dardenne Prairie and Weldon Spring. And 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 and the Metro Air Support Unit.

Maintaining safety and providing quality service to our community are key priorities of the SCCPD. Throughout our department, 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. Additionally, we offer a menu of helpful public services and insightful education programs to enhance citizen and business safety, as well as host and attend special events suitable for the entire family.
