{{featured_button_text}}

ST. LOUIS COUNTY • St. Louis County Executive Charlie Dooley is requesting that the County Council approve a $250,000 allocation to combat sex trafficking.

The funds, if approved by County Council, will be drawn as a supplemental appropriation from the general operating fund.

Dooley in a letter delivered to the council Tuesday said the money will go toward the formation of a computer forensic laboratory. It will also be used to hire two forensic examiners.

The County Executive said he will seek $530,000 in the 2015 budget to supplement this year's allocation.
