SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - The Shreveport City Council has approved a 56-point plan to make downtown bars safer.
Shreveport City Council members and the police chief have worked on this plan for several months.
Some of the top points of the plan include security personnel at downtown nightclubs must now have training, but do not have to be licensed by the state of Louisiana. Security must be on hand once the club has 75 customers, and must add another security person for every extra 75 patrons.
Also, any downtown club that can accommodate 200 patrons or more must have working security cameras.
