ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOX) — “There aren’t a lot of positive rescue stories about heroin, that is what’s so bad about this drug,” words from County Police Chief Tim Fitch who is spearheading St. Louis County’s efforts on awareness and prevention of heroin.

Tonight’s meeting at Oakville High in south County will be the third of at least four town hall meetings on the subject. The first two meeting were held in north county at Pattonville and Hazlewood Central High Schools. However Fitch says the majority of the heroin epidemic is in west and south St. Louis county.

The gatherings, featuring talks by law enforcers and people who have lost family members to the drug appear to be having an impact.

Chief Fitch said in 2010 St. Louis County had 60 heroin deaths, and they thought that number would grow in 2011. “We really believed that we were going to have 120, but then in March, April, May, June, and July they all were trending down.”

Tonight’s meeting is from 7 to 9:30 p.m. Fitch says he’s looking to hold the next meeting in west county.
