Police Department 
The Uplands Park Police Department serves the Village with 9 full-time police officers. The department was created because residents never saw enough patrols when contracting with other municipalities. Since formation by village trustees in 2006, the Department has been subject to corruption as well as using unlicensed officers on patrol which lead to a pursuit initiated by an unlicensed officer that carried into the city limits of Saint Louis and killed a mother of 4. Since 2010 however, the chiefs that have served have gotten rid of corruption, unlicensed officers and cleaned up the Department to better serve the community. The St. Louis County Police Chief believes many of the small municipalities should consolidate and pool their money to form County precints rather than operate their own individual departments to provide service at a professional level. The Uplands Park Police Department has 1-2 Ford Police Interceptors, 1 Chevy Impala purchased used and a 2011 Ford Escape Hybrid for Mobile Radar Photo Enforcement along Natural Bridge Road which was provided by RedFlex Systems at no charge in exchange for 1/3 of the ticket revenue.
