It is a controversial issue, combining the crime statistics for St. Louis city with St. Louis County, but it is one proposed to the FBI this week by city police chief Sam Dotson and the county's top cop Tim Fitch.  

Meanwhile,  St. Louis County prosecuting attorney, Bob McCulloch, spoke with KTRS's McGraw Milhaven earlier this morning. McCulloch says combining the crime stats would be a manipulation of numbers and in reality, wouldn't do much to improve St. Louis's position on the list of Most Dangerous Cities.

"It takes only from second place top eighth place and I don't know that there's a big difference" said McCulloch. "Are you going to argue, hey I don't live in the second most dangerous city in the country I live in the eighth most dangerous city in the country. It's just nonsense. What we ought to be working on is how we are going to govern this area."

McCulloch says one of the major flaws of combining the city and county's crime stats is that not all county municipalities are included, rather only those patrolled by St. Louis County Police. Jennings, Kirkwood, and University City, for instance, are among the municipalities that would not be counted.
