    Missouri State Highway Patrol Captain Ron Johnson and St. Louis County Police Department Chief Jon Belmar are photographed after giving a news conference in St. LouisBy Edward McAllister ST. LOUIS (Reuters) - Authorities on Wednesday disbanded what had been a command center in Ferguson, Missouri, for law enforcement responding to sometimes violent protests over the killing of an unarmed black teenager by a white police officer. Missouri Highway Patrol Captain Ron Johnson, who has led the response, told a news conference the Highway Patrol and St. Louis County police officers would continue to patrol, but the force had been substantially reduced. "People are communicating with each other and it is already leading to change, not just in Ferguson but across our whole region," Johnson said. Boarded-up stores were the only sign of the turmoil along West Florissant Avenue in Ferguson, which had been the site of clashes between demonstrators and police that led to scores of arrests after the shooting of Michael Brown, 18, on Aug. 9.
