ALTON - The City of Alton is asking for the input of residents for a new community policing strategic plan. The purpose of this plan is to build upon current successes that will improve the quality of life for all residents by creating a safer, more vibrant Alton.
To that end, the city has partnered with the University of Missouri to create a community survey. The survey can be accessed at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/AltonCommunityPolicing, or a hard copy can be picked up at the Mayor’s Office inside City Hall at 101 E. Third Street.
