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.
