Mel Carnahan on Crime


Ban racial profiling

Carnahan today signed into law a bill that will prohibit racial profiling, the police practice of stopping motorists based on their race. “We as a state and as a community are adamantly opposed to racial profiling,” Carnahan said. “The leaders of our police agencies also strongly oppose such practices. By officially prohibiting racial profiling, we hope to improve relations between police and community members and help further our goal of building racial harmony in our neighborhoods.”

Supports building new prisons

Gov. Mel Carnahan said today that a new prison in the Bootheel community of Charleston will play a key role in the state’s crime-fighting efforts and also boost the southeastern Missouri economy. “For the past seven years we have been cracking down on crime in Missouri, passing tougher laws for drug crimes and sex offenses and requiring prisoners to serve more time,” Carnahan said. “This new facility will help us keep this anti-crime momentum going.”
