ST. LOUIS (AP) - The relocation of St. Louis police headquarters has again been delayed, this time until July.

The police department bought an Olive Street building once used by financial services firm A.G. Edwards for $2.7 million using asset forfeiture money. The new home will replace the current police headquarters on Clark Avenue, a building nearly 100 years old.

Chief Sam Dotson tells the St. Louis Post-Dispatch (bit.ly/1oz0loO ) the move will now take place right after Independence Day. That’s more than one year later than originally planned.

The department is spending $6.3 million to renovate its new home. The St. Louis Police Foundation has donated $3 million toward the project. Private donations, city bonds and additional asset forfeiture money are also helping pay for renovations.
