ST. LOUIS COUNTY (KMOX) – The St. Louis County Police Association, Fraternal Order of Police Lodge is firing back at Bi-State after the board chair called for the firing of county Police Chief Jon Belmar.

Police association spokesperson Gabe Crocker is now calling for the immediate firing of Bi-State’s Director of Public Safety Richard Zott.

Crocker says in a statement that Zott, in collusion with the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, knowingly provided false, inflammatory, and misleading allegations against St. Louis County police officers.

He acknowledges that what he calls “cherry picked surveillance photographs” do not present well to the uninformed public, but he calls Zott’s actions “sneaky, pathetic and cowardly attack” on county officers.
