ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – The Jennings police department is now a chapter in a history book. 

The city of Jennings has shut down its troubled police department and contracted out the work to the St. Louis County Police Department.  

County police chief Tim Fitch tells KMOX his department has hired seven former Jennings officers and have assigned five of them to patrol the city.  The change became effective yesterday.

Fitch says Jennings residents can expect to see County Police cars and county officer uniforms with “City of Jennings” on them.

St. Louis County is now providing full-time police services for 19 cities and towns.
