AG plans conference on urban violence

May 30th, 2013 in News

JEFFERSON CITY (AP) - Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster plans to hold a summit meeting on urban violence later this year.

The attorney general's office says the conference gathering is tentatively set for September.

Koster, a Democrat, won a second term as attorney general last November.

He said during his campaign that he was considering setting up a task force on urban crime and another to evaluate Missouri's annual report on traffic stops by law enforcement.

Koster previously created special panels on auto service contracts and domestic violence.
