SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - Beyond the pandemic, the city of Shreveport has had a rough year in terms of crime, loss of jobs and other issues.
Shootings have plagued the city with several discussions on public safety. This also includes a pay increase for Shreveport fire and police.
Some large businesses have laid off workers due to the pandemic. City Council is working on addressing those issues and attracting businesses.
District A Representative Tabatha Taylor wants to tackle all of those issues to build a stronger city.
“Nobody wants to feel as if they are not safe,” Councilwoman Taylor says. “I am very happy to introduce new initiatives in 2021, when it comes to the reduction of crime.”
She encourages citizens to reach out to her or other councilmembers with any concerns or ideas to better the city.
