I would like to thank the residents and business owners of the Affton Southwest Precinct for their diligence in helping keep our community a safe and enjoyable place to live and work. Thanks to the cooperative effort between all of you and the St. Louis County Police Department we have seen an overall decrease in our crime rates here in Affton over the last quarter.
I would also like to acknowledge the residents and business owners in the Affton Southwest Precinct for their continued support of the Police Department during this challenging time. The outpouring of support and well wishes reinforces why we chose this profession. This support from the community is instrumental in helping the officers to strive to maintain the highest level of professionalism and committment that the citizens and businesses of the precinct deserve.
Halloween is almost upon us so we would like to remind parents to use the utmost care and attention to their children and their safety while trick-or-treating. I would also like to invite any trick-or-treaters to stop by the station for a treat. If you can't make it by the station keep an eye out for us in your neighborhoods. I will have extra officers patroling in the neighborhoods to ensure everyone has a safe and happy Halloween.
