St. Louis Police prepare to secure World Series

Tuesday, 22 October 2013 02:13 Published in Local News

   The World Series will put St. Louis on a world stage.  That means major security measures will be in place around Busch Stadium.  

   St. Louis Police spent time Monday coordinating security plans with the FBI, ATF, Homeland Security, and the Missouri Highway Patrol.  St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson tells Fox 2 News they're trying to run through every possible security scenario in order to have a response plan in place.  "We’re doing everything we can to make sure no stone is left unturned, and the resources are there when we need them," he said.

   Dotson says securing a national event like the World Series is a complex process, no matter where it takes place.  "Whether we’re in St. Louis, Chicago or Louisville it doesn't matter," he said.  "We still have to go through the same planning process as if we’re Boston or New York or L.A."

   Dotson says many of the safeguards that were in place in 2006, like mechanical and K-9 bomb sniffers and surveillance cameras, will be used again.  There will also be extra police officers on the streets, both in uniform and plain clothes.

   Fans are advised to get to the ballpark early and expect long lines because of added security measures.

 

 

 

   A St. Charles Urgent Care center is closed today after a minivan crashed through the front of the building Sunday, killing the driver.  

   It happened just before 1:00 p.m. in the 2800 block of Veteran's Memorial Parkway.  

   Police say a driver may have had a heart attack before his Dodge Caravan rolled into the path of an oncoming pickup truck.  

   The 88 year old minivan driver was killed.  His 81 year old wife is hospitalized in serious condition.  The pickup driver was treated at the scene.  

   No one inside the clinic was hurt.  But the building suffered structural damage and will be closed for at least the next several days.
