Throughout 2023, our department remained steadfast in its mission to uphold the highest standards of law enforcement while fostering trust and collaboration within our neighborhoods. Despite facing staffing shortages, our officers continued to demonstrate resilience and adaptability, working tirelessly to safeguard our streets. 

From crime reduction initiatives, collaboration with the Community Counseling Center to implement a Co-Responder Unit and countless community engagement efforts to advancements in technology and officer training, we have made significant strides in enhancing public safety and strengthening the bonds with the Cape Girardeau community.

As we look ahead to the challenges and opportunities that await us this year, I am confident that our collective resolve and shared commitment to service will propel us toward even greater achievements. The success of our police department is a testament to the dedication of our officers, the support of our community partners, and the trust and confidence of the residence we are privileged to serve.

On behalf of the Cape Girardeau Police Department, I extend my sincere gratitude to our officers, staff, and community members for their unwavering support and collaboration. Together, we will continue to build a safer, stronger, and more resilient community.
