From the Chief of Police

The City of Stuart is a beautiful community of approximately 16,500 residents, surrounded by water and located on the Treasure Coast of Florida in Martin County. We are known as the Sailfish Capital of the World.

The City is the county seat and business hub for the Treasure Coast. I would like to publicly thank the members of the department who make this community a safe and comfortable place to live. 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 for those who visit. We recognize that in order to be successful we must engage the community in our efforts. 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.

Thank you for your interest in the Stuart Police Department.
