Any bets the entire city hall will be filled! Wish they could move the meeting to the J.J.E. Center so more folks could attend. We are very blessed to have such a great group of men and woman working at the Florissant Police Dept.

Hopefully things are getting better after the restructuring. Many of the Florissant Police officers failed our family for refusing to do any investigation into substantiated child abuse. No doctors or interviews ever conducted and no police report made despite several attempts to do so after the perpetrator admitted to the one incident to one of our children. No investigation or apprehending the perpetrator's grown daughter for theft, and 8 months to just get a police report. A false police report was made on this theft and Chief Karabas refused to intervene violating our Constitutional rights. They thought this was funny and our family has life-long wounds due to the negligence and lack of attention to the abuse of our 4 children. We must hold them accountable to do their jobs!!!
