(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.

Police officials will lead a march from the old headquarters to the new building at 10 a.m. Saturday. Mayor Francis Slay and Police Chief Sam Dotson will preside over an 11 a.m. ribbon cutting, followed by public tours until 1 p.m.

    Use the old building, or the property, to support and collaborate with Kiel Opera House. Most downtown performing arts centers have support facilities near by because it adds to the economic value of the center and its mission and creates additional jobs. All downtown performing arts centers have parking. Except one. Grand avenue ‘denied’ the Abrams building for that purpose, Grand center blocked parking for the opera house on the 14th street. And so far, no re-development of the municipal courts building. That’s power. And power hurts.

    So, how much did THIS set taxpayers back?

    And do they have a room dedicated to all the people (and dogs!) shot unnecessarily and unfairly by police? They’d need a MUCH MUCH LARGER room.

      Unfairly huh? I’d say about 99.9% got what was deserved. You actually get more insane every time you post something. It’s quite impressive.

        Naw, Krystal – you right-wingers got it wrong AGAIN! (And again and again – must have issues with your perception of reality.) It’s probably closer to 99.9% were unfairly targeted, and only .1% got what they deserved.

        And thanks, at least you think my insanity is impressive – your right-wing police state insanity is not impressive at all, just sick. What’s insane is how many people still think like you – do you work hard at being out-of-touch and anti-social, or does it just come naturally to you?

    Why would they move away from the court buildings and city hall, I think it was fine where it was, that location seems odd to me.

    They need to actually fight crime so there are not rolling gun battles and harassment on a daily basis of people that live and work in the area. The police department and 911 are a joke. Protect yourself because the cops will never arrive!
