Chief of Police Message

This Police Agency has embraced the "Community Policing Philosophy" in an effort to provide the highest level of service to all its citizens. By reaching out to include the community in our endeavors, this agency can move forward with a vision and purpose. Professionalism and competence are barometers in determining our success. However, the main factor in evaluating our performance is the feeling and attitude our citizens have regarding the Police Department. We shall forever strive to deliver assistance at its most productive.


Chief Hampton and the men and women serving our community here in University City want to take time to extend our gratitude and appreciation to those individuals who have been supportive of our community and the University City Police Department
­čĹ« during this time of unrest. The UCPD prides itself on our core values which include integrity, honesty, respect, professionalism, and self-discipline. We would like to ensure all that our neighborhood will remain safe as we continue to provide protection, security and community policing throughout University City.

Thank you again for all of the great donations of food, drinks and services being offered here in our community.
