The St. Louis group that held the 2010 National Police Collectors Show will be making a presentation again this year to host the 2012 National Police Collectors Show. We have obtained the same facility we used in 2010 at the St. Charles Convention Center next to the Embassy Suites. The dates that the center will be available are June 29, 30 and July 1. We received many complements on our last show and are hoping we will be able to provide another great show here in the Midwest. The show hosts will be; Don Magruder, Frank Selvaggio and Bob Shocky.
