The St. Louis Police Department released its crime statistics today for 2010.
And what did the statistics show?
A Missouri House committee has voted in favor of legislation to give St. Louis control over its police department, which has been under state control since the Civil War.
Those arguing in favor of local control say it's past time for St. Louis to regain authority over its police force.
