The mission of the Maryland Heights Police Department is to enforce the law, maintain the peace, protect life and property and promote the quality of life in the City of Maryland Heights. We strive to provide a safe environment for all the people who live in, work in, visit or pass through our city.
Within the Police Department are the following divisions and programs:
Bureau of Field Operations
This is our uniform patrol division responsible for around-the-clock protection of the city. They provide traffic enforcement, bicycle patrol, accident and criminal investigations, crime scene processing and an above average response to crimes in progress.
Community Response Unit
This team of problem solvers focuses on identifying threats and problems to businesses and residents alike. They work hard to correct these issues and to enhance day-to-day policing activities through the integration of information, investigative activities and the use of technical equipment. These officers also serve the City as a fully functional tactical team prepared to respond to any threat which may present itself.
These four legged officers enhance the department's operations in drug detection and missing person searches. Our canines are nationally certified by the Master Trainers of the North American Police Working Dog Association, the National Police Canine Association and the Missouri Police Canine Association.
Bureau of Investigations
The Detective Bureau is responsible for investigation and follow-up of all crime reports generated by our patrol services officers. They are also responsible for background investigations and all major case work, as well as for evidence processing, juvenile case management and working with the St. Louis Multi-Jurisdictional Task Force. Detectives from the Bureau of Investigations also assist with transporting prisoners, with warrant services, and with narcotics and vice enforcement.
The communications team operates our 24-hour dispatch center. They receive and process all 9-1-1 emergency calls, as well as all non-emergency calls for service. They also work hard to assist our police officers with their investigative efforts by helping to run records and warrant checks on suspects. If you have a request for non-emergency police service you can either call (314) 298-8700 or you can email the On-Duty Dispatcher at: email@example.com. This email is monitored 24 hours per day by each on-duty dispatcher. For all emergency situations, please call 9-1-1.

This community relations division handles crime prevention and citizen education programs. It includes School Resource Officers at the Pattonville High School and Pattonville Heights Middle School, as well as a D.A.R.E. Officer who doubles as a School Resource Officer at our local elementary schools. This division also has a team of Reserve Police Officers who are used to supplement patrol services and assist at special events throughout the City.
This team of highly skilled clerks maintain all of our police reports, arrest reports and all other documents required to comply with state and federal information acts. They also assist our officers and detectives in their preparations for court hearings. Further, they assist our community by providing applicant fingerprint processing.
