SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - The Shreveport Police Department just got a little extra help from the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission.
A grant program awarded the department $130,070 which will allow SPD to conduct a variety of traffic safety enforcement initiatives for 2019 such as:
- DWI enforcement
- Seat belt enforcement
- Saturation patrols
Safety checkpoints will be established throughout the city. The department is still deciding where they will be place.
SPD will work with the Caddo Parish Sheriff’s Office, Louisiana State Police and other ArkLaTex law enforcement agencies.
