On Wednesday, November 12, 2014, the REJIS Commission held a 40th Anniversary Celebration and Awards Dinner at the Chase Park Plaza Hotel in St. Louis, Missouri. Nearly 250 people attended, including numerous elected officials and police chiefs. The purpose of the event was not only to celebrate four decades of REJIS, but more importantly to thank our clients – our partners.
One of the awards we presented was the “Trailblazers Award” given to 16 St. Louis area municipalities who were REJIS’ first criminal justice partners and are still our partners today. Thank you!
We also presented awards to the people who envisioned the role computers could play in fighting crime, to the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department for 50 years of integrated law enforcement technology, to the City of St. Louis and St. Louis County for their cooperative agreement that led to the creation of REJIS, and to the Kansas City Police Department for opening new frontiers, western Missouri, to REJIS.
