St. Louis Police Shift Officers From Reports To Violent Crime
(KTVI) – In a news release sent to area media Thursday, the St. Louis Metropolitan Police say they are responding to violent crime by changing how they handle crime reporting.
Police officers will no longer be sent for reports of stolen cars, car break-ins, attempts to steal or break in to cars, of theft of license plates or tags.
Reports can be called in and will be taken over the phone. Detectives will still receive the reports and investigate, but an officer will not show up at the location of the crime to take the initial report.
