  STREET SWEEPING
 We have two street sweepings planned for this fall. Weather permitting, the sweeper will run through the
 City according to this schedule:
       August 17th - 19th and October 19th -21st Schedule:
       Monday, all streets between I-170 and the east side of McKibbon.
       Tuesday, all streets between the west side of McKibbon and the east side of Boswell.
       Wednesday, all streets between the west side of Boswell to Edmundson and all streets east of I-170.
 If it is raining the sweeper will move the scheduled sweeping back a day. Please remember that in order to
 get the most efficient use of this contracted machine, we will need you to park in your driveway on the day
 your street is scheduled to be swept. Also please remember that the street sweeper is not a leaf vacuum, so
 please do not rake leaves or other yard waste into the street. The machine will not be able to pick it up and
 that area will not be swept. Thank you for your cooperation with this effort to keep our streets clean.

                                                          2
CONTACTING AN OFFICER
Are there times you need to talk to a Police Officer after regular work hours but not for an immediate emergency?
You can contact the St. Louis County Dispatcher at 889-2341 and tell them you’re a St. John resident and you
need to talk to an Officer. They can take your name, number & reference and have a St. John Officer call you
back when they are available.

VACATION CRIME PREVENTION TIPS
Vacation is a time for relaxation and enjoyment. It can also be the time for crime victimization if the
appropriate crime prevention measures are not followed. The following are some of the crime prevention tips
or recommendations which are designed to allow the vacationer to enjoy their vacation more by not having to
worry as much about their house while they’re away.
Before Leaving Secure Your Residence . . . . .
	 •	 Have	good	locks	on	all	doors	and	windows	and	use	them.
	 •	 Leave	shades	and	blinds	in	a	normal	position.
	 •	 Ask	a	neighbor	to	watch	your	residence	while	you	are	away	and	leave	your	vacation	address	and		 	
      telephone number with them so you can be reached in case of an emergency.
	 •	 Test	your	smoke	and	burglar	alarms.
	 •	 Stop	all	deliveries	or	arrange	for	a	neighbor	to	pick	up	your	mail,	newspaper	and	packages.
	 •	 Arrange	for	someone	to	mow	your	lawn,	rake	leaves	and	maintain	the	yard	to	give	the	home	a	lived-in	look.

                 SOBRIETY CHECKPOINTS
                The St. John Police Department was successful in obtaining a grant from the Missouri
               Department of Transportation Highway Safety Division to conduct several sobriety
               checkpoints throughout the year.
              One weekend each month, St. John Police will be conducting sobriety checkpoints. Drivers
              suspected of intoxication will be given a brief field sobriety test. Confirmed drunk drivers
                             will be arrested.
                                 While some area motorists may be slightly inconvenienced by these stops,
                                 citizen patience and cooperation will assist in this important safety effort.
