The St. Matthews Police Department provides the following community policing services in an effort to stay connected and inform the community by interacting with us and our officers. You can request a speaker at an event or schedule our chief or officers at your business so the public can interact with not only our officers, but your establishment. Our Department would also like the community to learn more about us by attending a Citizens Academy which enables the attendees to have a more in depth look into law enforcement.
Request a Speaker
You may request an officer or a member of the Executive Command Staff to speak at any engagement or event.
Chat with the Chief
As a business owner, Chat with the Chief is a way for the you to invite the public into your establishment to interact with the Chief of Police.
Coffee with a Cop
Coffee with a Cop allows the business owner of a restaurant to invite the public into their establishment to interact with officers. These same officers may work with your staff to help serve customers. It brings police officers and the community members they serve together – over coffee – to discuss issues and learn more about each other.
Citizen’s Police Academy
The St. Matthews Police Department believes education is a highly effective way to inform citizens about law enforcement. The Citizen Police Academy offers community members insights into how police officers perform their duties and how the department serves the community. Through this, we hope to build stronger ties and support from the community.
