A Message From the Chief of Police

The City of Creve Coeur has always been a great community and a safe place to live. The men and women of the Creve Coeur Police Department are dedicated professionals in their field. The Department is staffed with 49 commissioned officers, one reserved commissioned officer, five support personnel and six chaplains. Our goal is to maintain a safe, peaceful community 24 hours a day.

The officers dedication is to the community we serve as well as to the general public visiting, working or traveling through the City of Creve Coeur. While the Police Department has a major role in maintaining a safe community, we rely on you as individual citizens to help us do that.

I value your input and appreciate your ideas and opinions. Please let me know if you find that the Police Department is not living up to our goals or if you notice an employee performing his/her job in an especially commendable manner. We will take your input very seriously.Thank you for all of your comments and support in our efforts to achieve our mission. I value your suggestions, input and help in our efforts to make our mission successful.

Glenn A. Eidman, Chief of Police
