Sex workers shot in St. Louis City; public safety alert issued

ST. LOUIS – It’s the first weekend that there will be a higher police presence in downtown St. Louis since the city launched its new initiative to combat crime.

The initiative includes a new task force that will include civic business and community leaders. They will meet every week to discuss how to improve downtown St. Louis, which is part of the new effort that included a greater police presence for the next six weeks.

Angela Pearson, special projects manager for the Mayor’s Office Downtown Engagement and Public Safety Initiative, said there will be 30 more officers in the downtown area this weekend.
