St. Louis crime reports in 2015: How did your neighborhood fare?

Jan 13, 2016

There were few surprises in the 2015 crime numbers.

Three neighborhoods – Jeff/Vander/Lou, The Greater Ville, and Wells-Goodfellow – accounted for nearly a quarter of the city’s 188 homicides. In 2014, Wells-Goodfellow topped the homicide count at 14, though Dutchtown, on the city’s southeast side, was second that year with eight.

Though homicides were down in Dutchtown in 2015, it saw 122 people shot – more than any other neighborhood.

“People talk about how everything is coming up roses in south St. Louis. That’s not the case,” Alderman Shane Cohn, who represents Dutchtown, said at the Board of Aldermen late last year. “We’re starting to stabilize somewhat, but the challenge is very real in our community.”
