During National Crime Victims Week, we honored Kelly Williams who was tragically killed by an impaired driver in 2015, and Sgt. Steve Schwind who leads our Child Crimes Unit and works tirelessly to seek justice for victims and their families. Bricks in their honor are now in the Victims Memorial Garden in Phelps Grove Park.

Good work, Sgt. Kibby!

SPD represented last weekend at the Molly's Miles 10k in Columbia, Missouri. This race was in honor of Molly Bowden who was killed in the line of duty in 2005. The race also raised money for Missouri COPS--of Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.), an organization that raises money for survivors of fallen officers. Thanks to our dedicated runners: Cpl. Barb, Cpl. Farmer, Ofc. Hoedel and Cpl. Steele!
