SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) — Mayor Adrian Perkins is hoping to secure funding from the U.S. Department of Justice for local law enforcement.
Tuesday Shreveport City Council passed a resolution, authorizing Mayor Perkins to apply for a grant.
It will be a joint application between the Shreveport Police Department and Caddo Parish Sheriff’s Office.
If approved the two agencies will split more than $127,686. The funding would provide new equipment for SPD and new vehicles for CPSO.
The City of Shreveport will receive $67,035.15 and the Caddo Parish Sheriff’s Office would take away $60,650.85.
