Dear Citizens, 

Hello, my name is Major Renee Kriesmann, and I am currently

serving as the Commander of the Bureau of Community Policing, providing senior-level oversight of all six police department districts in the City of St. Louis, helping to transform the Department into an organization that is both tough on crime and committed to partnering with neighborhoods in ways that reflect empathy and a healthy appreciation for the value and strength of community residents as key players in public safety.

Dear Citizens,

I am Captain Edward Benoist, and I have been assigned to the Fourth District as your Captain. As your District Captain, I believe everyone deserves the right to be safe and feel safe. This
means that crime reduction will always be the District’s first priority. The best way to achieve the safety we all desire is by working together and building ever-closer collaboration between the police and the people we protect. I look forward to working together. Thank you for all you do to support this city, and thanks especially for being part of its Fourth District.
