East St. Louis police implement new plan to increase officers

Posted: Updated:

EAST ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) - The East St. Louis Police Department is implementing a new plan to put more officers back on the street.

The police department is ready to provide more law enforcement despite losing eight officers recently due to cuts. 

"We are going to do everything we can to provide a high level of law enforcement to you," said Michael Hubbard, East St. Louis Police Chief.

Before the police department can staff more police, Emeka Jackson-Hicks, East St. Louis Mayor, Michael Hubbard, East St. Louis Police Chief, Alvin Parks, East St. Louis City Manager, and Marion Hubbard, East St. Louis Park District Police Chief came up with a new plan of action. 

The plan of action involved an intergovernmental agreement, which allows park officers to make traffic stops and assist East St. Louis police officers on calls. 

Marion Hubbard said, "We feel we want to help and be a part of East St. Louis. My men are state certified police officers." 

The new plan will kick off January 1, 2016, according to Michael Hubbard.
