The St. Louis County Police Department has scheduled a business forum with area cellular phone retailers on Thursday, July 11, 2013 at 4:00 PM, in Grace Union Church located at 3900 Union Road, St. Louis, Missouri 63125 (near Union and Lindbergh).

The forum, organized by the St. Louis County Police Department South County and Affton Southwest Precincts, has been scheduled following two recent cellular store business robberies in the area during which the lives of store employees were threatened and merchandise thefts totaling tens of thousands of dollars occurred. The forum is designed as an informational exchange and open dialogue between the cellular businesses and local police departments. Beneficial tips and concerns will be shared by the police relative to the recent violent trend and business questions or concerns will be addressed.

This invitation will also be extended to the bordering municipal police departments and their personnel. They will be encouraged to invite any mobile phone businesses that operate inside their jurisdiction. This forum will be closed to the media to allow for an open exchange of ideas between the parties; however, interviews will be available before and after the forum.
