St. Louis – The St. Louis Board of Police Commissioners has authorized the department to purchase a new software system designed to help officers keep better track of evidence collected during investigations.
The new system was the top recommendation of an outside auditor who reviewed the department's property custody department after thousands of dollars in cash went missing from an evidence locker in 2007.
The current system was modified from one designed to handle lab reports, said department spokeswoman Erica Van Ross.
St. Louis – Passionate outbursts from a packed house at a North County elementary school Monday night were not enough to stop the merger of two area school districts.
Parents, teachers and staff of Normandy and Wellston schools districts crowded into the cafeteria at Normandy's Lucas Crossing Elementary to hear from local and state officials about the need for the merger, which will likely be approved on Thursday.
