Hampton/Chippewa Technology Project Update
Although fundraising began less than one year ago, security cameras already have been installed at two of the nine key intersections identified in the project plan: Hampton & Chippewa, and Macklind & Chippewa. Those cameras, which provide lift to the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department (SLMPD), quickly led to several arrests and have generated countless leads in ongoing investigations.

Two successful neighborhood fundraisers – the Southampton Neighborhood Association Trivia Night and the St. Louis Hills Neighborhood Association Chili Cook-Off – recently raised enough funds to begin the next two phases of camera installations. We continue to be grateful for the generous support of Ward 16 residents and businesses as we work to make our neighborhoods safer.    

The Hampton/Chippewa Technology Project, which is harnessing the power of private donations to deliver results more quickly, continues to be one of Alderman Oldenburg’s top priorities. To learn more, or to make an individual contribution, visit the project homepage.
