Posted 2 years 168 days ago ago by Sebek, Valerie

Congratulations to PO David Steinmeyer for his Distinguished Service Citation. The Citation recognized PO Steinmeyer's heroic actions on Tuesday, January 29th wherein he was able to arrest a man who fired upon him and attempted to take his life. While on duty, PO Steinmeyer conducted a traffic stop. As he exited his patrol car, the driver of the vehicle fired three shots at PO Steinmeyer. PO Stein...meyer was able to take cover while the vehicle sped away. PO Steinmeyer initiated a pursuit, keeping the dispatcher and assist units updated of the fleeing vehicles location. Because of this, the vehicle was apprehended and the suspect taken into custody without further incident. His professionalism and dedication to duty reflect highly on the image and reputation of the St. Louis County Police Department.
