Joint federal-local effort to combat violence in St. Louis

St. Louis, MO ( KTRS ) Federal and local law enforcement organizations are teaming up on an effort to reduce the skyrocketing violent crime rate in St. Louis.

Details of “Mission SAVE” were announced Monday, though the collaboration actually began in December.

The effort involves officers from St. Louis city, St. Louis County, the FBI and DEA working together on investigations, with the U.S. Attorney’s office helping local prosecutors to get cases to the courts.

It targets the most violent offenders. In addition to the law enforcement aspect, a community engagement effort will reach out to those most likely to commit violent gun crimes, seeking to persuade them to change their ways.

Six more homicides occurred in the city over the weekend, bringing to 103 the number of killings in St. Louis so far this year.
