Caddo Parish Sheriff Steve Prator talks with 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert and Erin about his ongoing fight to convince the parish commission of the necessity of building a security fence around the courthouse grounds.

Prator, who is also head of area Homeland Security, points out that the barrier would not only be to keep downtown homeless from using the courthouse lawn as a campground, but to secure the building from any number of possible threats.

Earlier this week, the commission voted 8 - 3 to further study the proposal.
