More than a dozen police agencies in Missouri are awaiting a check that won’t come unless they send in they complete their assignment. Most of the 700-plus police agencies in the state have already submitted their crime statistics to the State Highway Patrol and their report on racial profiling to the Attorney General’s office. But 16 haven’t. State Public Safety Director Charles Jackson says it shouldn’t be hard to get the racial profiling stats in. Until they do, Jackson is withholding the remaining $500 they should receive for equipment and training. It’s not a lot of money, basically a token by the state to let agencies know they need to get their paperwork done and submit it to Jefferson City. And, Jackson says they have little excuse, because state officials are willing to help. Compliance is improving. Last year, more than 40 agencies failed to file the reports.
