St. Charles County Police Chief David Todd has been selected by the Missouri Police Chief’s Association to represent its membership on Missouri’s Homeland Security Advisory Council [HSAC]. Todd will join leaders from other state agencies in ensuring that state and local homeland security plans on terrorism and disaster preparedness are executed and coordinated efficiently.
“Chief Todd is an excellent choice,” County Executive Steve Ehlmann said in a press release. “The chief’s extensive experience in all areas of law enforcement, including emergency management, homeland security, SWAT and special operations make him an invaluable addition to this council.”
Todd also serves on the Homeland Security Committee for the International Association of Chiefs of Police, an appointment he has held for the past three years. He has worked in law enforcement for St. Charles County for 40 years and became the County Police Department’s first chief of police in 2015, when the department was established.
Todd is a graduate of the FBI National Academy and the Northwestern University Executive Staff and Command School.
