Hot Spot Policing Targets Tower Grove South

St. Louis, MO  --  St. Louis police are back on the hot-spot policing beat in a south city neighborhood.  

The Metropolitan Police Department's Command Van will remain in Tower Grove South and extra uniformed and plainclothes officers will patrol the neighborhood.

This is in an effort to stem a rash of burglaries, robberies and car break-ins in the area.

Early next month, police will turn their hot-spot attention to the Wells-Goodfellow neighborhood in north city.

St. Louis Police are expanding the hot-spot police efforts to a pair of south city neighborhoods.

The increased patrols started at 10 AM and are focusing on Tower Grove South and Gravois Park. The hot spot program focuses additional police coverage on areas that have seen an up-tick in crime. In October, police focused on the Lewis Place and Fountain Park neighborhoods in north city.

In just a week, officers found three guns and made more than 20 arrests. Residents in the area should expect to see more uniformed and plain clothes officers.

Police Chief Sam Dotson is ready for the second phase of a plan to control violence in a north city neighborhood.

Fox 2 reports the next part of "The College Hill Hot-Spot Initiative" will involve several government agencies. Police will start working with the city`s building division, health department, streets department and forestry division to literally clean up the neighborhood. Crews will work to clean up allies, fix street lights, and secure vacant houses.

Dotson believes the program will make a lasting difference in the community.

SLPD Chief Dotson asks to reorganize department

A shake up may be coming to the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department -- that is, if Police Chief Sam Dotson has his way.

The chief wants to dismantle and reorganize some specialized units - moving members of the Rapid Deployment Unit into precincts, and putting gang unit detectives under a single command working from the downtown headquarters. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Chief Dotson will ask the Board of Police Commissioners Wednesday for permission to make those changes and to put SWAT, narcotics and drug task force officers under the same command as patrol officers.

Dotson told the paper that the moves will make the department more flexible.

He's also expected to ask for permission to accept donations to beef up hot-spot policing efforts.

St. Louis Police will be out in force today, patrolling a north side neighborhood that has seen three murders in the past two weeks.

About 80 officers will saturate the College Hill neighborhood this morning. And Chief Sam Dotson says the extra patrols will be there until they've contained the violence.

Dotson says the College Hill intervention is an extension of the city's hot spot policing program.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that police plan to conduct roll call in the street, station a command vehicle on site, use dog patrols and make a door-to-door plea for help in solving recent shootings in the neighborhood just west of I-70 and north of downtown.
