Crime Down in Downtown St. Louis

Good news from the Downtown St. Louis Partnership:

Through October, total crime in Downtown east of Tucker declined by 24.2% compared to the same period in 2006. For Downtown West, total crime fell 9.0%. The City as a whole showed a 16.4% improvement.
It's important to keep in mind that despite the incorrect perceptions of some St. Louisans, statistically speaking, downtown has traditionally been one of the city's safest neighborhoods. As downtown continues to add residents, workers and businesses, it should only continue to become safer.
