Chief Belmar stated, “I am looking forward to working with all of the citizens we serve, both in unincorporated St. Louis County, as well as our many contract municipalities. I also look forward to continuing the relationship between the St. Louis County Police Department and other law enforcement agencies in the St. Louis County area. I’m extremely excited to lead all of the fine men and women of this Department who protect and serve our community each day in such a professional manner.”
