Local Law Enforcement And Community Come Together To Mourn Slain Dallas Police Officers

The local Blue Lives Matter chapter along with the St. Louis Police Wives Association, the St. Louis Police Officers Association, the St. Louis County Police Association and other law enforcement support groups have come together to put on the event scheduled for July 9 at 6:30 pm at Life Church at 1416 Larkin Williams Road in Fenton.

Police officials from the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department, the St. Louis County Police Department, and the Missouri State Highway Patrol have all been invited to attend. All police officers, police supporters and members of the general public are encouraged to attend as well. A number of elected officials have expressed interest in attending and all elected officeholders are invited and encouraged to attend regardless of party affiliation.

Jeff Roorda, Business Manager of the St. Louis Police Officers Association and former Missouri state representative, said that even Black Lives Matter activists and politicians who have spoken out against police are welcomed to come join in fellowship and somber remembrance of the lives lost in Dallas. "This is a chance for us to come together as a community and begin to turn the corner on all of the hatred and loss of life that we're experiencing right now," Roorda said.

NIJ 2015 Homicide Study Report
The 2015 homicide increase in the nation’s large cities was real and nearly unprecedented, according to a report released this morning by the National Institute of Justice (NIJ).
 
In the report, Documenting and Explaining the 2015 Homicide Rise: Research Directions, Richard Rosenfeld, Professor of Criminology and Criminal Justice at the University of Missouri – St. Louis, observed the scale of the homicide increase for a sample of 56 large U.S. cities.
 
He anticipates the year-end 2015 homicide rate for this sample will be close to a 16.8 percent rise over 2014. As a comparison, between 2004 and 2006, national violent crime rates rose by 3.5 percent and homicide rates increased by 5.4 percent.
 
Rosenfeld examined three plausible explanations of the homicide rise: an expansion of urban drug markets fueled by the heroin epidemic, reductions in incarceration resulting in a growing number of released prisoners and a “Ferguson effect” resulting from widely publicized incidents of police use of deadly force against minority citizens.
 
He notes the timing of the increase provides stronger support for the Ferguson effect explanation than for explanations attributing the homicide rise to expanding drug markets or declining imprisonment.

Sergeant Representation Announcement

The St. Louis Police Officers Association is happy to announce that the results of the Sergeants Union Representation Election were tallied this morning and the SLPOA was selected to represent sergeants in collective bargaining. We are incredibly excited to have this opportunity to advance the standing of Sergeants on important issues like salary, benefits, overtime compensation and other working conditions. The SLPOA has a record of delivering comprehensive collective bargaining agreements for PO's, PPO's and Recruits and we're anxious to get started negotiating for similar concessions for department personnel holding the rank of Sergeant. We believe, as we always have, that cops are stronger when we are united. With all of the anti-police rhetoric we face, this new level of unity couldn't come at a better time.

In the next few weeks, we plan to schedule a forum at the Hall open to ALL Sergeants to talk about our shared priorities for union contract negotiations. Stay tuned to our website and your email for further details on a date & time.

In unity,

The St. Louis Police Officers Association

A Message from Teamsters Local 688
Hello,

We're in a battle with Schnucks Markets, please help our Brothers and Sisters in Teamsters Local 688 to stop these attacks on Teamster Members! Some of you may have already signed but I'm sending to everyone I know !!

One of the largest grocery retailers in the St. Louis area has announced plans to eliminate 190 union jobs and subcontract their work to a non-union operation.

That's why I signed a petition to Todd Schnuck, Chairman and CEO, Schnuck Market, which says:

"As consumers and supporters of organized labor, we call on Schnuck Market to halt its plan to eliminate the jobs of 190 Union warehouse workers and subcontract operations to a non-union third party."

Will you sign this petition? Click here:
