The Board of the Ethical Society of Police (E.S.O.P.) believes the great majority of officers within the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department (SLMPD) and around the world behave in a manner befitting of officers. However, when we as officers disregard internal policies and the laws we’ve sworn to uphold we must be held accountable.
In 2016, the Ethical Society of Police authored a 112 page Comphrehensive Evaluation of the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department (S.L.M.P.D), which outlined race-based disparities, ineffective policing, race-based tactics, promotional bias, disparities with discipline, and disparities in coveted positions within S.L.M.P.D.
The report received national acclaim. The link to the report is listed below.
The E.S.O.P.‘s mission is to bridge the gap in communication between the Police Department and the community.
The E.S.O.P. seeks justice and equality for all Police Officers and Civilians within the police department.

One of the E.S.O.P.‘s many "Pizza with a Cop" events in the City of St. Louis. E.S.O.P. Officers served pizza, laughed with our kids, and received lots of hugs. This event was created by our very own, Detective John Leggette, who is standing in uniform in the middle of the fun.
