St. Louis Aldermen approve Civilian Oversight Board

St. Louis, MO (KTRS) – The City of St. Louis will have a civilian board that can investigate complaints against police.

The Board of Alderman approved the creation of the board Monday. The bill would create a panel of seven civilians who would have to power to investigate allegations of police misconduct, examine department policies, and make recommendations for changes. The board would report any findings to the city’s public safety director and polcie chief.

A notable condition of the board’s creation, they would have no subpoena power. A spokesperson for Mayor Francis Slay says he intends to sign the bill.

The bill was passed despite a request from the St. Louis Police Officers’ Association that the Aldermen vote against the proposal.
