Mo. County Sets Off-Duty Alcohol Policy

May 02, 2012  | 

St. Louis County (Mo.) Police officers must have a blood-alcohol level of 0.04 or less when driving a take-home patrol car under a new policy set by the county, reports St. Louis Today.

"It's impractical to tell an officer you can never have alcohol, because you can be called out at a moment's notice," said County Police Chief Tim Fitch.

The standard in Missouri and Illinois for being too drunk to drive is 0.08.
