Black Friday brings out the best... and the worst... in the retail industry.  There were great sales at many of our area retailers and local authorities are working to help prevent robberies this holiday season.

Shreveport Police Department, Bossier City Police Department and the Bossier Parish Sheriff's Office are working with businesses to reduce thefts at stores and ensuring shoppers have a safe shopping experience.

Shreveport officers have been visiting area businesses to inform them of the department's robbery task force.

If you see any suspicious activity in or around a store, you are encouraged to contact the local authorities.
