A 30-year-old Shreveport man has been sentenced to three years in federal prison as part of the federal Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN) program.

Alvin Kincrely Law Jr., who was arrested by Shreveport Police in June 2017, following a routine traffic stop.

Before the red pickup truck Law was driving came to a stop, the SPD officer saw a black object being tossed out the driver’s side window.

A firearm was later retrieved and was found to be a Lorcin, Mira Loma, CA, USA, model: L380, .380 caliber pistol.

Law who has a 2011 felony conviction for possession of marijuana, fourth offense, under his belt, cannot legally possess a firearm.

The PSN program was reinvigorated in 2017 by U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessons as part of the Justice Department’s renewed focus on violent criminals.

The program brings together all levels of law enforcement and the communities they serve to reduce violent crime and make our neighborhoods safer for everyone.  

All U.S. Attorney’s Offices have been directed to work in partnership with federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement and the local community to develop effective, locally-based strategies to reduce violent crime.
