Safety is among our top priorities. Cape Girardeau is fortunate to have outstanding public safety personnel helping to protect its more than 39,000 residents and estimated 100,000-person daytime population. To maintain critical services for our citizens, we aim to hire and retain the best police officers, firefighters and support personnel and provide them with the right training, support, facilities and vehicles.
