Event Cancellations AND PROCEDURE CHANGES


Following the advice of the St Louis County Executive and other community leaders, we unfortunately are going to postpone the following police-related events:

  • Citizens Police Academy (All of March and April)
  • Municipal Court (March 25, 2020 and all in-person court proceedings until April 8, 2020). The court office will remain open at 300 N New Ballas Rd). More information can be found here: 3/16/2020 Order of the Court
  • Coffee with a Cop (March 28, 2020)
  • Women's Self Defense at Missouri Baptist University (April 6-9, 2020)
  • Personal Safety Presentation (April 21, 2020)

Please follow the City of Creve Coeur's Calendar for updates to non-police events and meetings which can be found on the homepage or at www.crevecoeurmo.gov/calendar.

The Creve Coeur Police Department remains a 24/7 operation under any and all working conditions (Emergency: 911 / Non-Emergency: 314-737-4600). However, there are some minor changes as we try to balance social distancing with serving the public:

  • Limiting public access to the interior of the PD station outside of necessary public safety functions. This includes temporarily suspending our fingerprinting service and tours of the new police building. 
  • Medication can no longer be dropped off at the lobby. The group that provides the service, P2D2, has notified the police department they are suspending the program until mid-May or until further notice. They did provide a document on how to dispose of medication at home. The document can be found here: Disposing of Unwanted Medication at Home
  • All sick cases prompt an EMS and Police response. However, unless criminal activity is suspected and/or EMS personnel requests assistance, the police department will stage outside of the building to help protect EMS equipment.
  • Vehicle accidents that do not have injuries nor require a tow may require being resolved via telephone. 
  • DONATIONS: The Creve Coeur Police Department has a drop off box for donations of PPE equipment (such as homemade masks) at the Creve Coeur Police Department lobby. Donations can be dropped off Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. BJC picks up the donations on a daily basis. A full list of needed items and delivery locations can be found here.

This is a unique and evolving event. Chief Eidman and the rest of the Police Department have been working diligently to maintain service levels as well as developing operational plans for foreseen and unforeseen developments. We will try to keep you updated and value any input you have on how we could serve you, the residents. 

A Message From the Chief of Police



The City of Creve Coeur has always been a great community and a safe place to live. The men and women of the Creve Coeur Police Department are dedicated professionals in their field. The Department is staffed with 49 commissioned officers, one reserved commissioned officer, five support personnel and six chaplains. Our goal is to maintain a safe, peaceful community 24 hours a day.

The officers dedication is to the community we serve as well as to the general public visiting, working or traveling through the City of Creve Coeur. While the Police Department has a major role in maintaining a safe community, we rely on you as individual citizens to help us do that.

I value your input and appreciate your ideas and opinions. Please let me know if you find that the Police Department is not living up to our goals or if you notice an employee performing his/her job in an especially commendable manner. We will take your input very seriously.Thank you for all of your comments and support in our efforts to achieve our mission. I value your suggestions, input and help in our efforts to make our mission successful.

Sincerely,
Glenn A. Eidman, Chief of Police
