Troopers to patrol I-55, I-70 freeing St. Louis police to fight crime

ST. LOUIS_  St. Louis police will soon be able to focus more time on violent crime. According to our partners at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch,  20 to 30 Missouri Highway Patrol troopers will start patrolling parts of Interstate 55 and I-70 in the city early next month.

The interim police chief says the department is still figuring out how to assign the officers freed up by the move.
