West County Precinct (7th)

Captain Mary Barton, Commander



I take a profound interest in ensuring the safety of the residents and businesses within the West County Precinct. I look forward to serving the citizens of West St. Louis County and maintaining the St. Louis County Police Department's impeccable reputation.

Crime has continued its downward trend in the West County Precinct and a lot of the credit for this is attributed to you, the community, that helps the men and women of the West County Precinct by keeping us aware of issues and calling us to report suspicious activity. I ask that you please continue with your outstanding efforts in helping us keep your residences, businesses and neighborhoods safe.

With spring arriving and the weather changing for the better, I ask that you consider the following in your day to day routines:

*Please be cognizant of children being more active in neighborhoods and slow down while driving in residential areas.

*Continue to make sure that you close your garage doors at night. Do not give anyone an opportunity to take possessions from your open garage.

*Secure your valuables from your vehicles. The majority of our crime in the precinct is theft from vehicles which are unlocked.

*Continue to contact the police when you see anything suspicious.
