A Message from Chief of Police for Alton & Southern, Lindell Barton

Over the past 24 hours, there have been a rash of violent activity in the area between the downtown river bridges and the A&S Yard. At least three car jackings, two shootings, and numerous police pursuits have occurred.

Please be aware of your surroundings and avoid driving through a crowd of people. If you find yourself in a situation where you must stop in traffic, give yourself room to maneuver your vehicle around the vehicles in front or beside you. If you are in a vehicle accident or break down in the immediate area, please call the Special Agent on duty immediately at: 618-779-6692. Always secure your parked vehicle while in the lot, and remember to remove your keys.
