The City of Ferguson's Police Department numbers 72 personnel including 54 commissioned officers and 18 civilian support staff. The officers are all police academy graduates and are certified peace officers by the Missouri Department of Public Safety.
Three supervisors as well as the chief are graduates of the FBI National Academy. Many of our officers have bachelors or advanced degrees. All officers participate in advanced continuous training in numerous areas of law enforcement.
In addition to our uniform patrol officers and criminal investigation detectives, the department is supplemented with four K-9 officers, bicycle patrol, and a traffic unit. The department has its own correctional facility, maintains evidence and property, and on-site indoor firearms range.
Our relationship with the community is enhanced by our commitment of personnel to the positions of Community Relations, DARE, and school resource officers.
