Crime in St. Louis

This week on Stay Tuned we take a closer look at crime in our region. We’re joined by for an exploration of the data — what it shows, what it leaves out, and the greater implications of what we perceive about crime. How does perception affect reality? We’ll also explore Lafayette Square, a community that experienced significant turnaround when neighborhood business owners and residents took ownership of their community and partnered with law enforcement and civic leaders to stop crime. What are other communities doing to combat criminal activity? We’ll also explore the role of the media in this conversation— how does the way journalists cover crime influence the public consciousness around crime?

If there’s one thing that the people in this city need to know, it’s that the word of one person can really turn the crime and turn the community around”
