About the Saint Louis County Police Department

The St. Louis County Police Department is a full-service law enforcement agency with over 750 sworn personnel and 250 civilian police employees.  According to the Saint Louis County Police Department, “St. Louis County was established in a proclamation by Governor William Clark in 1812, as an area bounded on the east by the Mississippi River, on the north by the Missouri River, on the south by the Meremac River and the west by the foothills of the Ozark Mountains.

The region grew with communities rising up to feed the needs of those early travelers migrating west. Initially the population remained centered near the area known now as the City of St. Louis. By the mid 1800's the City, with its dense population had moved to separate themselves from the County. At the close of WW II, the population began shifting and by 1960 both the City and County were each nearing a population of 725,000. In response to this growth the citizens of St. Louis County voted to create, develop and maintain a professional police agency. In 1955, the Saint Louis County Police Department was established to serve and protect the rights of all citizens within our borders.”
