Police Adding Additional Patrols in South St. Louis Beginning Today

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – The city’s latest plan to cut crime starts today in two south side neighborhoods.

It’s called “hot-spot policing,” a highly-touted plan to flood troubled neighborhoods with extra officers, both undercover and uniformed, operating from their own command post.

Police say hot spot policing has been very successful in north and west St. Louis. Now, the south side will see the way it works.

The plan will target the Tower Grove South and Gravois Park neighborhoods.

The first zone officers will be on the job by noon with the hot-spot zones in effect around the clock until further notice.
