Butler's murder in Collegeville highlighted a pronounced lack of communication between residents and police. In May 1970 the Birmingham Police Department launched the "Collegeville Pilot Project", headed by Captain B. R. Myers, to increase patrols and citizen interaction in the neighborhood. Police investigated not just criminal activity, but also assisted in addressing public nuisances such as missing street signs and unlicensed pig-raising. Due to insufficient funding, the program was curtailed before the Spring of 1971.
