Dooley nominated Robert Baer and T.R. Carr to the St. Louis County Board of Police Commissioners, a board with only two of five slots filled. Baer and Carr were nominated to fill vacancies caused by the resignations of Greg Sansone and Floyd Warmann.

Earlier this summer, Dooley nominated Democrat Freddy J. Clark and Republican Dave Spence to serve on the five-person police board.

A proposed change to the county charter that would have required subcontractors to disclose potential conflicts of interest when doing business with the county failed to advance in the St. Louis County Council.

The change was introduced in the wake of Gregory Sansone’s resignation from the Police Board after questions were raised about his company receiving a subcontract to work on the county’s new crime lab.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation is looking into whether there was any wrongdoing.
