ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Any worries about the frequency of violent crime in downtown St. Louis were quickly put to rest, according to attendees of a Catholic Educators national conference at America’s Center.
KMOX News spoke with some as they were coming and going Wednesday from the NCEA 2017 Convention & Expo in St. Louis.
“It’s a great city to go and be so interactive with everyone,” one visitor said.

“Excellent host city for something like this, and of course there’s a million cultural things to see as well. Really awesome,” said another.
None of the dozen or so non-St. Louis resident who spoke to our Brad Choat said they felt “unsafe” at any time while walking to restaurants, Busch Stadium, or any other attractions.
“They’ve really been treating us well, and certainly welcomed us as part of their town so we’ve been able to go to the Arch, a number of people went to the baseball game, things like that, so they’re really enjoying it here,” said a convention attendee from Omaha.
The convention wraps-up, Thursday.
