A new study has found that the city of St. Louis’ various agencies and officials need to work together more closely in order to cut down on crime and make the city a safer place to live.
A team of IBM consultants spent three weeks in St. Louis this spring studying the use of data and technology in the city’s various law enforcement agencies. St. Louis was awarded a grant by IBM as part of the technology firm's "Smarter Cities" program.
St. Louis has been named as one of 24 cities worldwide to be awarded a "Smarter Cities" grant by IBM, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch's Tim Logan reports.
What does the grant entail? And how will it be used in St. Louis?
