ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – The chairman of the St. Louis County Police board is stepping down as federal investigators look into a $3.7 Million dollar deal for his company to work on a new crime lab.
Chairman Gregory Sansone submitted his decision by a letter to the board. His term ended years ago, but he has been serving until a replacement was named. Former Missouri Governor candidate Dave Spence has been named as the new board member to take Sansone's place. The announcement was made at a press conference held by County Executive Charlie Dooley on Thursday.
There are more changes coming to the County Police Board. Dr. Freddy J. Clark will replace Floyd Warman who resigned a few weeks ago.
Both decisions need to be approved by the council. There will be a meeting on Tuesday to make the confirmations. It is expected that the appointments will be approved.
A new board chairman will be named at some time in the future.
