CLAYTON, Mo. (KMOX) - As promised, the county executive is making six recommendations for St. Louis County's new Justice Services Advisory Board.
Following the deaths of several inmates in the county jail since January, Sam Page told the county council Tuesday night that three staffers had been suspended, and he was finalizing a list of appointees for the advisory board.
"We can do better, and we will do better," Page said.
Page said several changes have already been made at the county jail since he took over as county executive, and he's hopeful additional reforms will be suggested by the panel.
The list of appointees must be approved by the county council.
