Florissant Police Department now has a prescription/non-prescription drug disposal box permanently located in the lobby of the Florissant Police station.

Schneider say the box provides a safe location for citizens to properly dispose of unused prescription/non-prescription medications and an environmentally safe alternative to disposing of both prescription non-prescription medications in landfills and sewer systems which may negatively affect the environment.

The Belleville News-Democrat says St. Clair County Sheriff Rick Watson is exploring the costs of perhaps giving relatives the option of visiting with their jailed loved ones through online video streaming.
Watson says such an offering would be safer in that it would let inmates have such visits from their cells rather than requiring guards to move them to and from the visitation area. And it would be convenient for the relatives.
Supporters of the idea include the John Howard Association, a nonprofit prison watchdog. Its executive director, John Maki, says enabling more visitations creates a calmer lockup, improving safety of the jail and staff.
Tuesday, a federal jury convicted 71 year old Fred Robinson of all charges, including wire fraud and federal program theft.

Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal, of University City, stood Tuesday and read news reports about gun violence in her urban district. She says the Legislature should focus on legislation curbing violence in urban areas.
The amendment would declare gun rights "unalienable" and compel elected officials in Missouri to defend against any infringement on the right to bear arms. It would also allow people to use firearms in defense of their families.
The sponsor, Republican Sen. Kurt Schaefer, of Columbia, says his amendment responds to proposed gun restrictions in the federal government.
It needs one more vote before moving to the House, and would later need approval by Missouri voters.
