The Dutchtown neighborhood leads the way in many of the major crime categories. Dutchtown is bounded by Chippewa, Walsh, Compton and Gus(Teen). St. Louis Police Chief Dotson told the board of police commissioners yesterday that homicides are down by 10% across the city compared to last year over the first quarter. 30 murders have been reported so far this year compared to 33 last year. Gun-related aggravated assaults are also down significantly. Meanwhile, the number of rapes are on the rise, however the FBI recently expanded the definition of rape, and if that definition was in place last year, those rape numbers would actually be down.
