SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) — Representative Barbara Norton is kicking off her crime-fighting initiative with a meeting tonight in Shreveport.

Earlier this month Norton announced the “Turning Crime Around” initiative which will be a way for citizens to reach out to community leaders and law enforcement to help prevent violence.

It’s a project Norton said came about because of the recent spike in violence. In Shreveport, Norton said, “every other day a week or so ago it was two people being shot, it was three people being shot, it was one person.”

The meeting will be held at 5 p.m. Monday, Dec. 16 at the Winnfield Funeral Home.

SPD Chief Ben Raymond and other city, church and community leaders are expected to attend.
