Investigation of Dooley’s Officers Continues
ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – It’s been more than two months since St. Louis County Police launched an internal investigation into two police officers who drive County Executive Charlie Dooley.
The investigation centered on whether one or both of Dooley’s drivers made improper computer searches in the REJIS system, a regional data base containing arrest records. Under state law any search into REJIS has to have a law enforcement purpose. Among the questions raised: were any of the searches possibly politically motivated?
Police have completed their investigation and are not commenting on their findings. Their report is now on the desk of the St. Louis County Counselor, who will take a couple weeks to determine whether any disciplinary action is in order.
KMOX has a Sunshine request pending to find out what names the officers searched.
