On April 18, the University City Police Department will start its Citizen’s Police Academy courses designed to provide greater insight for University City citizens regarding policing practices and services. The Citizen’s Police Academy will operate to foster better relationships between the University City Community and its law enforcement.

Courses from the Citizen’s Police Academy will be held to educate citizens on laws of arrest, crime scene information, patrol and investigative strategies, and other procedures to enhance understanding of the role and functions of the Police Department.

On Monday, March 13, University City Mayor Shelley Welsch will honor the courageous acts of two community members who saved the life of an unconscious individual in the Feet for Life parking lot. During University City’s Council Meeting at 6:30 p.m., Mayor Shelley Welsch will award Justine Enochs and Denise Goings a Proclamation to commemorate their selfless and quick reactions that saved a fellow citizen.

I know it has been a while since I last posted. Life got a little crazy. Between graduate school, work, and board meetings…I need to revamp my education information sharing to the fabulous OnStL community. So here I go!

Looking for Employment?

This blog spot is for you if you are stuck trying to move forward in your career. Keep reading if your skills and talents have gotten you so far, you don’t have a job and you don’t know what to do. 

Let me begin by saying don’t worry. In 2009, 9.9 percent of St. Louisans were unemployed. It was a tough to find a job back then. There were a lot of people in your position who were out of work. Yet in 2013, only 6.5 percent of St. Louisans were unemployed. So again, don’t worry. There are things you can do to find work. 

And what are they?
