St. Peters Police Department courageously apprehended a single mother school teacher at her home this Sunday morning. She missed her court date for a minor traffic incident. A warrant was issued for her arrest in St. Louis County. St. Peters Police took the initiative to hunt down the St. Louis County fugitive before she could make it to church and cuff her in front her neighbors. Some may say that St. Peters police are harassing their own taxpaying/voting citizens at their homes in order to inflate the adult arrest statistics before the 2012 Department Annual Report. Some may call it busy work for a police department with an excessive budget. We call it heroism! St. Peters can sleep soundly knowing Chief Thomas A. Bishop is at the helm!
