Over 5,000 Florissant residents are active Neighborhood Watch participants.

Don't you have better things to do than write speeding tickets?

  • As a matter of fact, traffic related complaints, including speeding, are year after year the number one complaint of Florissant residents. In response to these complaints the department conducts traffic related educational programs, produces media alerts about the problems, employs two radar display trailers to educate motorists about their driving habits, and as a last resort we do write about 15,000 citations annually.

I received a telephone solicitation from a caller representing the police. Was the caller legitimate?

  • The Florissant Police Department does not solicit contributions for the department or it's officers and we do not condone this activity. However, various police officer and police chief associations across the state do solicit in this fashion. We believe that if you wish to make a donation to benefit law enforcement you find a more direct method that results in the organization reaping the benefits instead of the operator who may get more than half of the contribution as a fee for the fundraising.
