The city police departments of Richmond Heights, Maplewood, Shrewsbury, and Webster Groves have joined together to form a prisoner processing unit. The unit’s headquarters are at:
Public Safety Building
7447 Dale Ave.
Richmond Heights, MO 63117
The City of Richmond Heights provides two police officers. Maplewood provides one officer and a civilian booking officer. Webster Groves provides one police officer, and the City of Shrewsbury provides gas and maintenance for the prisoner transport van.
This arrangement allows for prisoners that have been arrested by another jurisdiction in the metropolitan area be picked up by this unit. This arrangement ensures that an on-duty officer in the four municipalities does not have to leave their city shorthanded while prisoners are picked up.
