Crime Stats Update

Good news on the crime front: According to the Downtown Partnership, overall crime in downtown St. Louis is down 11.7% from last year, which was down 15% from the year before. The SLPD expects to soon be able to increase the size of the downtown bike patrol as well.

Good to hear that crime is down somewhere in the city. Any specific word on violent crime? I'm happy with the increase in police on bikes, but I'd love to see mounted police too. Its old timely, but its intimidating and the cops get noticed that way. Its a psychological deterrent.
