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:

Boyd calls for Carter Resignation
Press Statement
For Immediate Release
May 12, 2016
 
27th Ward Committeewoman Pamela Boyd
Cell: (314) 229-6567
 
 
Following Alderman Chris Carter's 
Being Taken into Custody
27th Ward Committeewoman Pamela Boyd 
Calls for His Resignation
 
The Democratic Committeewoman of the 27th Ward has called on Alderman Chris Carter to resign following his arrest by St. Louis County Police on suspicion of spousal abuse.  "I worked closely with our former Alderman, the late Gregory Carter, and believe the best thing for our current Alderman can do is to resign and concentrate on his personal issues and family.  He cannot effectively represent our ward with this cloud hanging over his head," said Boyd.
 
Alderman Carter was taken into custody on May 10th and held for questioning in reference to an incident of spousal abuse that his wife says took place at a home in St. Louis County on April 30th.  Alderman Carter was stopped for driving on an expired license plate and for having a missing front license plate.  During the traffic stop they saw he was wanted for questioning in the spousal abuse matter.  Authorities in St. Louis County have not yet said if a summons will be issued.
 
"Spouse abuse is an intolerable act and it had been general knowledge in my opinion that Alderman Carter has exhibited anger management issues towards others.  I believe he needs to concentrate on getting the help he may need.  If St. Louis County decides to bring charges against Alderman Carter in the case that will further distract him and make serving effectively as our Alderman impossible," Boyd added.
 
Boyd also said she was troubled by other factors surrounding the incident.  She questioned why there was such a delay in authorities finding Carter for questioning after the incident, what Alderman Carter and his wife were doing apparently living in a home outside of the ward and outside the City of St. Louis, and that as a public official, he would be showing disregard for the law and driving on expired license plates.  "Women are the majority of voters in the 27th Ward and the thought of anyone accused of physical violence against their spouse is especially abhorrent to women, wives, mothers and grandmothers.  Alderman Carter has a great deal to answer for, including to God, and his resignation should be the first step," said Boyd.
