Pine Lawn officials consider contracting police duties with St. Louis County

(KTRS) – A Tuesday night Pine Lawn City Council meeting grew contentious as officials announced they were considering outsourcing the town’s policing duties.

Fox 2 reports that the council is looking at contracting police services with the St. Louis County Police Department. Residents expressed frustration at what they see as a lack of transparency in the process. After just six minutes last night, the council went into closed session and ordered residents and the media to leave the building.

Fox 2 says those citizens want more transparency, accountability, and public input in any decision. Alederman Adrian Wright told Fox after the meeting that no major decisions were made.
