(KTVI) - It will be a historic weekend for the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department. They are finally moving into a new headquarters building located at 1915 Olive Boulevard.
According to the Associated Press, the department is swapping a 100-year-old building for one constructed in 1990. The department bought a nine-story building once used by financial services firm A.G. Edwards for $2.7 million using asset forfeiture money.
