This interview will be on “St. Louis on the Air” on Tuesday noon hour. This story will be updated after the show. You can Listen live.

As St. Louis Mayor Tishaura O. Jones talks about reinventing public safety, a new report from the Center for Policing Equity provides suggestions for fixing the current system.

“As we work to build the systems we need, we must also work to improve the systems we have,” note its authors.

The report is a 110-page document which explores everything from the need for after-school programs for St. Louis youth to greater accountability for St. Louis police officers.

We’ll speak with co-author Hans Menos on Tuesday Saint Louis live. Menos is vice president of the triage intervention team at the Center for Policing Equity.
