COLUMBIA, Mo. — Columbia police will soon begin taking more than half of suspects under arrest to the Boone County Jail instead of the police department.
The shift in procedure, set to start sometime next month, will affect most people arrested on suspicion of violating state law, patrol Capt. Brad Nelson said. Those arrested on suspicion of violating municipal law will continue to be booked and processed at police headquarters.
