ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)- The Ethical Society of Police, a minority police organization with the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department, says it does not have confidence in the leadership ability of Police Chief Sam Dotson. They are expected to make the announcement at a press conference later Tuesday.

According to a press release, the group will give a complete evaluation of Dotson within 90 days. They say the department lacks a comprehensive community engagement plan after the riots in Ferguson and St. Louis, it lacks a crime reduction plan and Dotson’s internal practices with promotions, discipline, and job placement has diminished the morale of department employees.

They also say about 82 percent of all lieutenants promoted under Dotson have been Caucasian.

The group will make the announcement at 4 p.m. at the NAACP office at 4811 Delmar Boulevard.
