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.

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.
