I encourage all residents to purchase a club from the Neighborhood Stabilization Team at City Hall, Room 418 (314-622-4628) or from your Second District Public Affairs Officer, Don Veile (314-444-0168). You can also purchase other anti-theft devices from outside vendors, such as a kill or fuel switch and GPS tracking devices. Remember if you seen anything suspicious remain unseen and call 911.
