Captain's Message

The  officers serving in the City of Fenton Precinct are committed to providing police services at the highest possible level.  We make this commitment so the people who reside in our City, attend our schools, work in our businesses, or enjoy the many amenities that Fenton has to offer, can do so knowing the area is one of the safest in Saint Louis County. 

This commitment is only possible through the assistance of our community.  The assistance we need is gained through the participation of our citizens in programs we sponsor such as the Citizen Police Academy, the Neighborhood Watch Program ,  and the annual National Night Out events.
In a recent review of available material it was determined that petty larcenies are one of the primary concerns within our community.   The petty larcenies are occurring primarily from unlocked vehicles, the majority of them on business parking lots.  To prevent these thefts, we recommend  locking your vehicle when it will be unattended for even a short period of time.  Additionally, we recommend that you leave nothing of value in plain view .   We ask our citizens to immediately report any suspicious behavior, such as persons loitering in parking lots,  or unfamiliar individuals walking in neighborhoods.

Please rest assured that our officers and myself will continually monitor the events occurring in our City.  As we identify issues affecting the City we will develop enforcement plans to address them.  As a part of our commitment to you, and your partnership with us, I will strive to ensure that you are kept up to date on the information available to me and the assistance we need from you.



With warmer weather, our children will be enjoying the outdoors. Help us to provide a safe and secure environment for both you and your children by paying special attention to the speed limit in your subdivision. The City of Fenton maintains a  20 miles per hour speed limit on all residential streets within the city limits.


St. Louis County Police Department and the City of Fenton’s number one complaint from citizens are speeding vehicles in residential area.  Please feel free to report any concerns to the police department, an officer can conduct radar in the area or our new radar trailer can be set up to slow down traffic. 


May is Bicycle Safety Month. Officer Dilks has teamed up with a Uthoff Valley Elemetary student, telling his story on how the helmet he received from the Fenton Police saved his life.  We would love to share our story with your child if they need more convincing on why they should wear their helmet.


Bicycle helmets are an essential element to bicycle safety.  Together with the St. Louis County Health Department,  we will be giving away helmets to children of any St. Louis County resident.  Please call the Fenton Precinct from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. to schedule an appointment for a helmet fitting.  The Fenton Precinct always gives out free helmet to those are in need of one.

Report Crime ... Make the Call

If you see a crime in progress or another emergency situation that requires an immediate police response, call 911. Provide the call-taker with a good description of the incident, the offender, and the exact location.

For non-emergencies, however, do not call 911. Non-emergency calls to 911 can slow the response time to true emergencies. The number to call for non-emergencies is (636) 529-8210.
