What is your take on the unrest in North St. Louis County?

FERGUSON, Mo. (KMOV.com) – St. Louis County police are beginning to scale back their manpower in, and around, Ferguson as the unrest in the area starts to calm.

Officials said if everything continues to go well in Ferguson some county officers will be going back to their regular 10 hour shifts.

“We’re starting. We’re looking at our operational plan every evening and we’re starting to adjust our manpower accordingly,“ said Highway Patrol Captain Ron Johnson.

Around 6:00 a.m. Wednesday, police started moving their big trailers out of the shopping center that was the command post in Ferguson, according to authorities. 

Later in the day, News 4 found command post deserted.
