Services to Our Citizens

Vacation Checks and Extra Patrol

Our Vacation Check service can provide you with additional peace of mind when you are away from home for an extended period of time. After you are signed up, an officer will inspect your residence on a regular basis while you are on vacation or away from home.

The Police Department also provides extra patrol for residents and businesses of the City of Eureka.  Officers will provide increased patrols as patrol time allows.

To set up these services, you may contact office staff at 636-938-6600 and provide the necessary information.  For vacation checks you may use the Vacation Watch form and fax it to 636-938-6602, mail it, drop it off at the station or call a member of our office staff to email the form. 

Safe Exchange Area

The Eureka Police department has established an area on our public parking lot that can be used as a safe space for making internet purchase exchanges. Like other police departments in the nation, the Police Department saw a need to offer citizens a safe place to conduct internet purchase exchanges. The area is located on the west side parking lot, it is well lit and available for use 24 hours a day. The area is covered by a surveillance camera that is recorded; however the area is not monitored or staffed by officers and we encourage everyone to still be cautious when meeting any person that they do not know.

If a person is unwilling to meet you at the Police Department to conduct a transaction, that should make you highly suspicious of their intentions.

Other safety tips are:

  • There is safety in numbers. Always take someone with you to conduct a transaction.
  • Never meet in out of the way locations.
    Conduct business in a public area with people nearby and never inside of a vehicle.
    Don’t allow the other party to change the location once you arrive.
    Conduct research on both the product you are buying and the person selling to/buying from

Giving Box

Anna Coppin, a former #EurekaStrong 5th grader at Eureka Elementary, took her vision of creating a Giving Box & made it a reality! She outlined the project, created a food drive, had her grandfather help to construct the box, took it to the council at Eureka City Hall & got her approval! Be sure to visit Anna’s gift to our community & take what you need, leave what you can. It’s located at the Eureka Police Department on the west side parking lot.

Anna’s story:
