ST. LOUIS, MO. (KTVI) – St. Louis city residents got their first chance Wednesday to have a say in the selection process of a new police chief for the Metropolitan St. Louis Police Department.  The forum was moderated by FOX2’s Charles Jaco.

Residents and employees had a chance to question the Board of Commissioners, who be conducting the search for a new police chief.  By state law, only employees of the St. Louis Police Department from the rank of Captain and above are eligible to become chief.

The meeting lasted from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Harris Stowe State University in Mid-Town St. Louis.

In the meeting residents questioned the commissioners and process of selecting a new police chief.  What qualities they want, how to tackle crime better in the city and who will control the police department.
