Prop P is a vital initiative to provide law enforcement with the manpower and resources necessary to keep themselves and county residents safe. The proceeds from the one half of one percent sales would be earmarked for county and municipal law enforcement needs.

Revenues generated by this tax would be shared with each municipality in St. Louis County. The proposed tax would generate approximately $80 million annually.

If approved by voters, St. Louis County’s portion of the revenue would enable:

Hiring more Police Officers

A second police officer in patrol cars when necessary

Increasing police and department staff salaries

Installing dashboard cameras in police vehicle

Expanding officer training on topics like peaceful conflict resolution

Providing body cameras for officers

Developing a computerized crime reporting system
