Rewards From Shreveport Crime Stoppers Might Offer More Money
I feel like we are always talking about Caddo-Shreveport Crime Stoppers. You'll hear them mentioned during newscasts or at the bottom of articles hoping to get information that can help local authorities solve crimes. You can visit their website at any time to submit a tip. If that tip ends up being helpful you could collect a very nice reward to the tune of $1,000. Now there are talks of increasing the reward.
The Caddo-Shreveport Crime Stoppers webpage has its mission statement up front and center when you visit their website. "Caddo-Shreveport Crime Stoppers is a community-supported non-profit designed to assist in the safety and security of local families and businesses, helping to maintain a safe environment that contributes to the quality of life.". In many cases, the only information concerning a crime comes from tips given to Crime Stoppers. To say that this organization is essential in our community is an understatement.
A resolution called the Cooperative Endeavor Agreement (CEA) has been introduced to the Shreveport City Council. If the city of Shreveport and Crime Stoppers work together to boost the reward do you think it would convince Shreveport residents to say something? Keep in mind the reward boost would only happen if the crime was tied to a handgun or firearm.
This increase could boost the reward from $1,000 to $2,000. According to Shreveport Times, we could see movement on this as soon as May 11th.
Given the horrid surge in crimes in Shreveport lately, two council members are hoping that the resolution goes through. Council members John Nickelson and Jerry Bowman plan to sponsor the proposition.
