De Soto Police Department News

I would like to express my sincere appreciation to the young men and women who attend class at De Soto Junior and Senior High School. Today I watched you demonstrate your thoughts and opinions in a mature and uplifting manner. Because of your examples today, you reinforce the positive notion of why so many of us love to call De Soto home. On behalf of our Department, it was our pleasure to be part of your school experience today. Sincerely, Chief Edwards

It has come to our attention that there has been speculation of a pending threat within our community. It is true a citizen made law enforcement aware of a possible threat, it is also true that this threat was jointly investigated by De Soto Police and the FBI. After a thorough investigation by both agencies, the determination was made that no threat existed. As always our agency will continue to work closely with the School Administration to address any and all threats as the safety of all students is paramount. If you have any additional questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me directly at (636)586-8891 Please take a moment to share this with others to reduce the misinformation spreading mostly via social media. Joe Edwards Chief of Police

Regularly scheduled Siren testing happening now!!

Let’s help them out and spread it around..

The graph is from a CodeRed that was sent on February 24th 2018 Operator Intercept of Total Calls made was 53%. What does Operator Intercept mean? It means that 53% of the calls made by CodeRed were not reached because of the following: • The Phone has been Disconnected • The Phone Number has been Changed • The Phone Number is no longer in Service • You have moved and not updated your information on CodeRed. You need to login to CODERED and Update your information with your New or Correct Phone Number so that you can be reached in the event of an Emergency. If you move to another part of the City or out of City Limits, you need to login to CODERED and update your new address and phone number if it has changed. To make changes to your CODERED account from the Internet please use this address:
