SPD takes action against "cruising"

SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) – There's a crackdown on cruising, and Shreveport Police are taking it very seriously.

Police began a special operation on Sunday around 6pm, involving 20 extra officers on patrol, along with lots of other department personnel.

Those extra patrols focused on areas where cruising is often the very worst, like Jewella Avenue and Greenwood Road.

Traffic gets backed-up on busy cruising nights, and hurts businesses because customers must wait so long to get there.

But, for Sunday night, at least, it was pretty slow.
