According to sources, City of St. Louis (a Public Safety organization in Missouri) was hit with a cyber attack. It was first reported on 2023-09-12.

'Security incident' involving criminal database hampering St. Louis area police operations

“For 24 hours now, the region’s largest criminal justice database system has been offline, making it difficult for police officers, jails and other law enforcement agencies to operate throughout the St. Louis area.“

“The Regional Justice Information Service, also known as REJIS, experienced a “security incident,” at about 3 p.m. Monday, and has been turned off ever since, said REJIS CEO Ryan Burckhardt. “

“REJIS is a private company that provides data processing services and online information systems for police and sheriffs' departments, prosecutors, courts, correctional institutions, and probation and parole agencies at the federal, state, county and local levels. It serves the City of St. Louis, 92 municipalities in St. Louis County, other communities in three adjacent Missouri counties and four counties in Illinois, according to the Department of Justice's website. “

“Burckhardt said police departments and other REJIS clients, including corrections and other law enforcement agencies, have differing levels of service through REJIS. So the impact on the agency depends on the level of service.“
