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.
