City of Jennings Precinct (8th)

Captain Jason Law, Commander

JLawGreetings, I am happy to report the men and women of your police department continue to work tirelessly and I am proud to report that we continue to see a reduction of crime throughout the entire City. Not only has crime been reduced, our community programs continue to see growth in citizen participation. As I have stated previously, this is OUR community and the more involved citizens become the safer it will be.

We continue to see residential burglaries remain at low numbers. Please continue to report suspicious activity to the police department. Your calls are making a difference! When reporting the activity attempt to obtain as much information as you can and relay it to the operators in our communications center. Important information such as; what is going on, vehicle description to include license plate, what individuals are wearing, their direction of travel, and any information you believe is valuable to resolve the issue. Part 1 crimes have been reduced by 33% since St. Louis County Police assumed command of full police services. Again this reduction is something that all citizens and business owners should be very proud of!
