Chief of Police
As your Chief of Police and on behalf of the men and women of the Bellefontaine Neighbors Police Department, we are proud to serve our great community and provide you with the best quality of police service that you will benefit from and come to expect as a community member. We use best police practices and commonplace standards for professionalism that support human rights and civil liberties. We strive to increase the quality of life for our diverse community by enhancing public safety through effective collaboration with our citizenry and other stakeholders. We serve you with integrity and the promise of continuous improvement in building trust and confidence between the police and the public. Your law enforcement service is powered by partnership and driven by community.
Our community-policing philosophy is the cornerstone of our dedication to our community. Our commitment to you is unwavering and it has brought our community successes through many programs that exemplify democratic governance in customizing law enforcement services. Our community-focused strategies have been a prime factor in receiving civic awards from organizations such as the Missouri Municipal League, the East-West Gateway Council of Governments, and the Municipal League of Metro St. Louis.
We seek to maintain and improve upon the quality of life that our residents enjoy. We actively communicate with our residents to gather feedback to offer more comprehensive and contemporary services. We also encourage you to communicate with us for reciprocal guidance and problem-solving. More information is available through a variety of online sources, such as our website and social media platforms, where you can follow police department activities, research city ordinances, review monthly crime reports, and give your feedback through comments, complaints, and compliments.
We welcome a productive and effective relationship with you in protecting our community and keeping it safe. You are the heart of our strategy that will continue to lead us into the future.
