Welcome From Captain Mary Edwards-Fears
Hi! I am Captain Mary Edwards-Fears, Commander of the 5th District. Our district includes more than 15 schools and 200 businesses and is home to the legendary Crown Candy Restaurant. Our officers are committed to our continued efforts to reduce crime in the District.
As a result of our partnerships with residents and businesses owners, we’ve re-established Public Affairs Meetings for the district so that citizens have a forum to share their concerns and share information. The Fifth District Business Association has also been reestablished. Our officers look forward to continuing to establish relationships with the community. We are fortunate to have elected officials and neighborhood leaders who are also committed to developing the area. We look forward to the continued growth of the Fifth District particularly the development of “Crown Square” in the Old North St. Louis Neighborhood.
The commanders, supervisors and officers will continue to do our best to ensure that the Fifth District, with its many diverse neighborhoods and businesses, remains a safe place to place to live, work and play. Our top priority is to improve the quality of life for our residents, and ensure the safety of the patrons and employees of the many businesses who support us.
Captain Mary Edwards-Fears
Commander, District Five
