The Shreveport Police Department would like to hear from citizens about where they would like bond money spent to build new police substations.
Last year, citizens approved a Public Safety Bond Proposition for $70.65 million. It allocates $4.5 million to construct police substations, $27.5 million for a central police headquarters, and $2 million for city jail maintenance and improvements.
Other money in the bond is being used by the Shreveport Fire Department to purchase new fire trucks and vehicles, fire station renovations, and fire academy maintenance.
