Many regional residents are aware of how crime affects their daily lives, but, perhaps, few know how different actors are engaged in public safety and nuisance abatement. The focus is two-fold: 1) The strategies that exist at the neighborhood, city and regional level to tackle issues of safety in St. Louis (what works and what doesn’t); 2) The ways in which residents and inhabitants can become involved in this work to stabilize our communities (where can we foster meaningful partnerships?). An overarching question for this panel is, “How does population loss and higher rates of vacancy change the logic of law enforcement, code enforcement and quality of life?”

Panelists:
Eddie Roth, Director of Public Safety for the City of St. Louis (bio)
Rick Rosenfeld, Curators Professor of Criminology at University of Missouri-St. Louis (bio)
Sgt. John McLaughlin, St. Louis Police Nuisance and Problem Property Unit
