The Brentwood Police Department has initiated a voluntary citizen program called “Neighborhood Eyes”. Residents will have the opportunity to register their security camera system with the police department. This program has been successful in other communities in solving neighborhood crimes.
In the last few months, security camera systems have become more prevalent in our area. Several citizens in Brentwood, and neighboring cities, have provided police with security video showing suspects on their property entering their vehicles. This information is helpful to our investigators as they try to solve these crimes. When you register in this program, we may contact you after a crime in your neighborhood, and ask you to provide video they may help our investigation. This program is completely voluntary.
If you would like to participate, please provide your name, address and phone number, along with any information about your security camera system you would like to share (eg. location of camera, number of cameras, etc.). Our contact at the Brentwood PD is Det. Sgt. Jason Simpson at firstname.lastname@example.org and 963-8620.
On Wednesday August 24th, the Brentwood Police Department will hold a meeting to discuss two upcoming community policing initiatives.
The first is Neighborhood Watch. It has been many years since Brentwood used Neighborhood Watch. This is a crime prevention program that involves citizens working with each other and with law enforcement to reduce crime and victimization in their community. At this meeting, we will describe the program and see if there is interest in starting Neighborhood Watch in Brentwood.
The second is National Night Out. Last year we hosted block parties throughout the community. This was very popular and we are going to return to that format. If you are interested in hosting a block party or you would like to learn more about National Night Out, please come to this meeting. National Night Out is Tuesday October 4th.
Neighborhood Watch 7:00pm – 7:30pm
National Night Out 7:30pm-8:00pm
This meeting will be at Brentwood City Hall.

On June 17th, a Brentwood man was the victim of an armed robbery on Sonora Avenue. His car and personal items were stolen. On June 20th, his car was recovered in E. St. Louis, Illinois.
Evidence discovered in the car and further investigation by Brentwood Detectives Tim Bone and Rick Litschgi and Administrative Assistant Jason Oesterreicher led to the discovery of a suspect. On June 30th, a similar crime occurred on Pocahontas Avenue in Rock Hill. Investigators from both cities were able to determine that our suspect committed both crimes.
The St Louis County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office issued at-large warrants against the suspect, Montel Harkins, 17 years old, of E. St. Louis, for Robbery 1st and Armed Criminal Action. Harkins was later arrested in E. St. Louis, and this week, our detectives interviewed him in regard to the crime on Sonora Avenue. Harkins admitted his involvement in the robbery. He is currently held at the St. Louis County Justice Center. He is a suspect in other crimes involving several neighboring towns.
