The Affton Southwest Precinct is ready for the 2013-2014 Holiday Shopping season to begin. Officers will be stepping up patrols and enforcement in several areas of the precinct. The goal of our holiday enforcement program is to provide a safe shopping experience through increased high visibility patrols to our banks, ATMs, business districts, and residential areas in the Affton Southwest Precinct. The holiday enforcement program will be achieved by utilizing officers from Patrol, the Neighborhood Policing Unit, the Tactical Operations Unit, the Highway Safety Unit and the Police Reserve Unit.
During the holiday shopping season, I would like to remind you to be aware of your surroundings. Remember to not leave valuables and recently purchased items in plain view inside your vehicle. Also, do not hesitate to notify the police of suspicious activity that you observe.
