Additionally, the department has 15 civilian personnel who aid in the department's operation.


The Police Department believes that one of its highest priorities is to do everything possible to maintain a high quality of life for those who live here and visit. We recognize that we must engage the community in our efforts to be successful. We actively form partnerships with everyone who has an interest in making Stuart a great place to live.


We are proud of our community and the efforts that our officers and employees make every hour of every day to make our city a safe place to live and play.
