Kevin Shade resigned from the Metropolitan Police Department on June 25, 2009. The Metropolitan Police Department - City of St. Louis is committed to rooting out any and all persons who violate the laws they are sworn to uphold. The department hopes the fact that we are investigating our own and participating in prosecutions when applicable, sends a message that such violations will not be tolerated by the leadership of this department, will not be tolerated by the officers who refused to have the actions of a few tarnish the reputations of the many, and will not be tolerated by the citizens of the St. Louis who expect and deserve better.
