Caddo Commission President Wants SPD Patrol Car GPS Info [VIDEO]
Caddo Commission President Steven Jackson talks with 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright and Erin McCarty about his request for GPS information from Shreveport Police Department patrol vehicles. Jackson says that, because the parish helped to pay for a portion of the SPD'd current fleet, he - and Caddo citizens - are entitled to the records to ensure that their tax dollars are going for the purpose intended.
Jackson tells KEEL listeners that his problem is not specifically with the officers of the SPD, "the men and women who put their lives on the line," as he puts it. The Commission boss says his point is "to be sure that the folks that are tasked to lead our city and to give direction to the department are accountable."
