SLPD Chief Dotson asks to reorganize department

A shake up may be coming to the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department -- that is, if Police Chief Sam Dotson has his way.

The chief wants to dismantle and reorganize some specialized units - moving members of the Rapid Deployment Unit into precincts, and putting gang unit detectives under a single command working from the downtown headquarters. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Chief Dotson will ask the Board of Police Commissioners Wednesday for permission to make those changes and to put SWAT, narcotics and drug task force officers under the same command as patrol officers.

Dotson told the paper that the moves will make the department more flexible.

He's also expected to ask for permission to accept donations to beef up hot-spot policing efforts.
