On behalf of the dedicated men and women of the Cape Girardeau Police Department it is my pleasure to welcome you to our presence on the web.
Chief
The men and women of the Cape Girardeau Police Department go about their daily mission of protecting the citizens of Cape Girardeau with pride and integrity. We humbly do so with a tremendous amount of support from you, our community.

The Cape Girardeau Police Department is comprised of more than 125 dedicated police officers and civilians. Our Annual Report highlights many significant accomplishments achieved by these employees as they diligently worked to protect and serve the people of our community. 

It goes without saying that 2020 was an unprecedented year for our community as we grappled with how best to respond to a worldwide pandemic, national tensions involving police responses, and a local cyber-attack that hampered our abilities to conduct "business as usual." Despite these obstacles, the men and women of the Cape Girardeau Police Department continued to work deliberately and without hesitation to provide the citizens of Cape Girardeau professional police services. 

At the forefront of our mission in 2020 was a consistent focus on addressing violent crime in our community. Through efforts such as directed patrols, partnerships with regional, state and federal agencies, we witnessed a 50% reduction in homicides and a 4% reduction in gunshot victims. 

I invite you to explore the information in our Annual Report. As you do, you will see that the Cape Girardeau Police Department is a progressive law enforcement agency that is committed to providing the residents and visitors of Cape Girardeau with exceptional service. 

Respectfully,
ChiefSignature
Wes Blair
