Dear Friend of Law Enforcement,
I first wanted to thank you for your support of law enforcement in the St. Louis Metropolitan Area. In addition to saying “thank you”, I am writing today to talk with you about a very important local law enforcement effort that needs your support.
In the greater St. Louis Metropolitan Area, there are 100 plus different law enforcement agencies serving municipalities and unincorporated areas across 13 counties. For our citizens to have effective law enforcement, these agencies must work together. Criminals do not care about city limits or county lines and many smaller agencies do not have the staff and professional expertise to handle the really big cases.
Over forty years ago, the Greater St. Louis Area Major Case Squad was formed and has since worked over 350 cases. 95% of the cases referred to the Squad are homicides. And, an amazing 80% of these cases are solved within five days. The Squad is effective…and I can tell you, it has improved law enforcement here in the greater St. Louis area.
Since it's beginning the Squad has been supported entirely by corporate and citizen gifts, no government money has been received. But the demands, both in the number and complexity of the cases, have increased dramatically. It is for this reason, I am writing to ask you to make a contribution of $25.00 or more to support our Major Case Squad.
I hope you will join us is in our effort today. Please mail the donation to:
Major Case Squad
700 North 5th Street
Belleville, IL 62220
Please let us hear from you today and please make your gift as generous as possible. With all good wishes,
Sheriff Mearl J. Justus
Chairman, Board of Directors
P.S. - Make a donation of $50.00 or above and receive the official Major Case Squad certificate, wallet ID card, and lapel pin.
