Safety is something that we sometimes take for granted. I urge you to take extra steps to protect yourselves, your vehicles and your homes.
Thousands of transactions facilitated the multitude of buy-sell-trade sites online occur in our community every day. Sometimes, these meetings can be unsafe. To increase the safety of these transactions, the Wentzville Police Department (WPD) has designated parking spots at the Law Enforcement Center entrance. By allowing transactions to take place on our property, we hope to reduce the possibility of fraud, robbery and assaults. The WPD is located at 1019 Schroeder Creek Blvd., in Wentzville, and is open 24/7.
Prevent Vehicle Break-Ins
The City of Wentzville is a great community, but we are not immune to crime. WPD conducts proactive patrol during the day and overnight hours, but that patrol canít be everywhere all the time. Protect your property with these reminders.
• Please lock your vehicles. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.
• Remove valuables from sight ñ this includes laptops, purses, wallets, money, etc.
• Remove firearms from unattended vehicles ñ even if you have hidden them or invest in a gun safe for your vehicle.
• Never, ever leave your keys/key fobs in your vehicle.
Criminals are specifically looking for unlocked cars. Secure your items and take away the opportunity for criminals to break in. To report suspicious activity, please call the Wentzville non-emergency line at (636) 327-5105.
