About Us

Founded in 1972

The Ethical Society of Police was founded in 1972 by African American Police Officers to address race-based discrimination within the community and the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department.

You Are Welcome

The E.S.O.P. welcomes Police Officers, Park Rangers, Deputy Marshals, and Civilians of all races, nationalities, religions, political affiliations, sexual orientations and gender identities. 

What we do

We are public servants. We champion fairness, equality and service. 

We hold ourselves and others accountable to the oath which we all swore as Police Officers.

E.S.O.P. Vision

Sgt. Heather Taylor President of the E.S.O.P.

In February of 2015, the Board of the E.S.O.P. added 'Genesis' to the name of the E.S.O.P. to signify change. It's a new beginning for us and our membership. 

The E.S.O.P. is comprised of both Civilian and Commissioned Employees in jurisdictions in the City and County of St. Louis. 

The E.S.O.P. is community driven. We seek equality within our community and the Police Departments we serve. You can often find our members serving our community in some manner. It's simply, what we do best. What we love. 

We hope you will enjoy visiting our webpage and seek us out for real police/community related discussions and solutions. 

We embody the spirit of the core values of our Police Department: Service, Integrity, Leadership and Fair Treatment to All. Many blessings, and thanks for stopping by!
