It's going to be a hot Labor Day weekend. StormTracker 12 Meteorologist Nicole Madden has the full holiday forecast on KSLA News 12 This Morning.

Shreveport police are working closely with the community to build a stronger relationship. In doing so, a group of police officers will leave the streets and head into the classroom for University Elementary Blue-Out Day.

Houston prepares to lay a fallen Harris County Deputy Darren Goforth to rest today. Law enforcement agencies are paying their respects to Deputy Goforth, who was killed at a suburban Houston gas station one week ago.  They will turn on their red and blue flashing lights this morning in response to Texas Governor Greg Abbott's call for a show of support for law enforcement.

And this weekend, the small town of Sunset, Louisiana, will say farewell to slain Sgt. Henry Nelson. Governor Jindal proclaimed September 14, 2015, as a statewide day of prayer for Sgt. Nelson and other fallen law enforcement officers.
