Greitens signs Blue Alert Law

Governor Eric Greitens signed the Blue Alert Law yesterday. The law will promote public safety and protect officers by allowing the Department of Public safety to create a system that will alert law enforcement and other public entities when an officer is assaulted. The law also increases the penalties for assaulting a law enforcement officer.

The Missouri Department of Public Safety, Highway Patrol, MODOT and the Missouri Lottery will be involved in creating the blue alert system.
