CLAYTON, Mo. (KMOX) – An investigation into the police drivers of St. Louis County Executive Charlie Dooley has now moved into a new phase.

Internal police investigators have wrapped up their two-month long probe into whether one or both of Dooley’s drivers made improper computer searches into the REJIS system. REJIS is a criminal background database that by state law is only to be used for “law enforcement purposes.”

At issue in the case is whether any of the name searches may have been for some other purpose, including political. The police investigation is now complete, and the report sits on the desk of the county counselor.

Deputy County Counselor Bob Grant says a review is underway to determine whether any disciplinary action is warranted. The review could take a couple weeks, Grant said.

Meanwhile, KMOX has a Sunshine request pending to find out what names were the target of those searches.
