  • Any of the CPSO substations located at 4910 North Market in Shreveport, 9956 Mansfield Rd. in Keithville, and 11411 Hwy. 1 North in Oil City

The sheriff’s office says the top 10 most-requested items are canned meat (tuna, salmon, or chicken), peanut butter, dried beans, rice, pasta/macaroni and cheese, canned vegetables, canned fruit, boxed cereal, oatmeal/grits, and flour/sugar.
