From the appointment of the City’s first marshal in 1912 until today, the Richmond Heights Police Department has progressed from a reactive department to a proactive department through the implementation of the "community policing philosophy" and through the utilization of modern technology to combat crime.

Through educational programs at the local elementary schools, the Police Department works at helping children make smart decisions under peer pressure and become leaders of society.

Also, in order to deter crime before it is committed, the Police Department has sub-stations located at Saint Louis Galleria and The Boulevard-Saint Louis, thereby providing a pleasant, enjoyable experience while visiting our City.

The RHPD maintains over 100 policies providing police officers clear expectations and standards related to all areas of police performance of duty.  Annual training required by all officers to continue professional certifications and employment is extensive.  Training includes but is not limited to the following areas: 
* De-escalation Techniques   * Anti-harassment Awareness   * Crisis Management     * Critical Thinking and Social Intelligence 
 * Handling Persons with Mental Health Cognitive Impairment Issues    * Implicit Bias Recognition   
* Racial Sensitivity, Cultural Competency, and Impartial Policing Practices
