UNIVERSITY CITY, MO (KTVI)– Thousands across the St. Louis area took their streets and the headlines back from the criminals Tuesday night.
St. Louis Police Chief, Sam Dotson, used Twitter to spread the word on National Night Out against crime, tweeting from about a half-dozen stops at events around the city.
Perhaps the biggest crowd was in University City.
About 5,000 people turned out for a combined “Night Out” and “Back to School” fair put on by U-City Police and U-City Schools.
People truly wanted to send a message to the criminal element that they demand safe streets, safe schools, and won’t settle for less.
