A little context:

Mayor Francis Slay and other city leaders want control of the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department, which has been overseen by a governor-appointed committee since the Civil War.

The police, meanwhile, fear that city officials would raid their lucrative pension to pay for budget gaps. They also don't want aldermen telling them what to do.
