St. Louis County Executive Charlie A. Dooley said the entire St. Louis community must now “begin the hard work of healing” following tonight’s Grand Jury announcement.
“The Grand Jury has done its work and now we must do ours. This will be a long road but it is one we must surely travel. There are so many issues we have to address but I know the people in this community are ready. I know we are able and we will move forward.”
With the support of caring adults, children can recover from traumatic events, re-establish a sense of well-being, and obtain professional help if needed.
