Ballwin Police Department Capt. Bobbie Saulters said her department's response time for emergency calls ranges from "seconds to minutes."This is an important distinction between municipal police and county police officers, who patrol a much larger area and are likely to be farther away when an emergency call is placed, Saulters said.In addition, Saulters said the fact that all emergency calls are dispatched to Ballwin's independent communications system first helps the department to keep its response times low."Our dispatchers are intimately familiar with the area," Saulters said.This helps them to effectively contact the officer who is closest to the scene of an emergency, Saulters said.Saulters also said the service that citizens receive in non-emergency situations is beyond comparison."If citizens call, they get a live person," Saulters says.For example, Saulters, who has been with the Ballwin Police Department for the past 16 years, spent her first four years as a St. Louis County Police Officer.Saulters said the bond created because of personal connections among different departments leads to more effective cooperation between them.As Capt. Saulters said, there is a "police family" within the St. Louis area, and all of the departments work together to provide the highest possible quality of service to the community.

Bobbie Saulters of the Ballwin Police Department. Saulters suggests people go with their gut feeling because sometimes something seen as small or insufficient can turn into something dangerous. "They need to be our eyes and ears when we're not there," Saulters said. In terms of personal safety, there is an emphasis placed on child safety because they tend to be more active outside, whether they are at camp or in their own neighborhood. Officials said they understand it is easy for people to become easily distracted with so much going on.This is another reason why increased awareness of others in one's community is so important to them. Saulters suggests that either parents or another adult supervise all activities and be aware of their children's whereabouts at all times, including contact with the parents of their child's friends. The importance of distinguishing strangers from people children can trust and turn to if in danger or injured also is emphasized. "There is no place exempt from crime," Saulters said."By nature, we're very trusting," Saulters said.
