St. Louis County Police Announce Holiday Enforcement

For Immediate Release


Keeping citizens safe and their property secure are the top priorities for the St. Louis County Police Department's annual Holiday Enforcement/Crime Prevention Program. In order to help keep citizens safe during the holiday season, the St. Louis County Police Department will continue to have both uniformed and undercover officers working in and around shopping centers. The Metro Air Support Unit will also continue patrolling commercial parking lots and shopping centers. Officers of the St. Louis County Highway Safety Unit will be working additional patrols throughout the holidays, emphasizing DWI enforcement.

Chief Fitch stated, "We want everyone to enjoy a safe and happy holiday season. In addition to each precinct implementing specific strategies for their area, officers from our Division of Special Operations, such as the Highway Safety Unit will also be highly visible. Remember, keep your eyes and ears open and immediately call the police if you see suspicious activity. Prevention is the key, and if we all pitch in and work together, I know we can be successful."
