In 1920 Crepeau, a member of the Trades and Labor Assembly Executive Board and a leader of Pressmen's Local 29, was appointed Chief of Police after labor took several seats on the City Council. The St. Paul Pioneer Press and businessmen raised a storm of protest after Crepeau called scabs "dirty rats" and refused to allow police to break up picket lines. Crepeau was removed from office by Mayor Larry Hodgson, a former newspaper columnist. In 1923 Crepeau and fellow unionist Frank Pampusch bought the Ramaley Printing Co.
