 (KMOV) – The 40 days of no violence campaign in East St. Louis ended on Wednesday but the mayor admits much more work needs to be done.

Mayor Alvin Park said the program had an impact with overall crime down and the community is more engaged and involved.

But authorities reported a total of four homicides have occurred since the beginning of 2014.

"The ultimate thing here it’s all about a safer more vibrant community," Parks said, "And this initiative has reignited a new energy to move toward that end”
