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.
