ST. LOUIS — A group of police officers from Iraq has gained a little insight from Missouri's largest police department.

Iraqi police leaders from the Baghdad Police College visited St. Louis police on Tuesday. The visit focused on the fundamentals of police training in the U.S.

St. Louis officials sought to help the Iraqi leaders improve their training centers, colleges and academies.

The Iraqi officials also viewed St. Louis equipment used by both the Bomb & Arson and Mobile Reserve units.

The U.S. military selected St. Louis as a host department for the visit.
