Police go door-to-door in north St. Louis

Tuesday, 20 August 2013 10:37 Published in Local News

St. Louis City police continue an effort to connect with residents in crime-ridden neighborhoods. Chief Sam Dotson and other officers along with various city employees were knocking on doors in the Vandeventer neighborhood of north St. Louis Tuesday morning. They were handing out CrimeStoppers information, talking with residents and offering city services like street cleaning and tree removal. Chief Dotson says that fighting crime is a team effort.

"That's why we've brought a significant show of force to the neighborhood, so the criminal element sees us," Dotson tells KTRS's Michael Golde. "We haven't given up on this neighborhood."

A mobile command van was also stationed in the area, and apparently for good reason. Right in front of the van, an officer spotted a .40 caliber shell casing laying in the middle of West Evans Avenue.

Alton police raising funds to buy new dog

Monday, 19 August 2013 08:28 Published in Local News

ALTON, Ill. (AP) - Police in the southwestern Illinois community of Alton are getting help raising money to buy a second police dog.

   Alton police officials and the city's mayor are set to receive about $1,000 from Madison County State's Attorney Tom Gibbons' office on Monday. The city's trying to raise at least $15,000 for the new canine cop by Dec. 1. So far, they've raised $10,000.

   The city has one police dog, after a second retired and a third had to be euthanized because of illness.

 

   If the fundraising beats the deadline, police can buy the new dog and begin training it by February of next year.

 

   Gibbons says the donation from his office is coming from assets that were seized in federal drug cases.
