Safety Matters

CADDO PARISH, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – Caddo Parish will have a new tool to help fight crime.

On Thursday the Caddo Commission approved an ordinance to spend $100,000 on technology that would help combat crime.

Commissioner Mario Chavez’ ordinance amends the budget to use money from the American Rescue Plan fund to purchase up to five ‘D3-Edge Security Trailers,‘ which cost $19,000 each.

In introducing the ordinance Chavez said, “They are these mobile trailers that utilize solar power. What they do is send the data or camera feed up to the cloud via a sim card.”

Chavez has said he would like the parish to rent the surveillance trailers out to the Shreveport Police Department.
