Chavez tells KEEL listeners that the real purpose of the meeting, of which invitees include commission members, the Shreveport City Council and City Marshall, Louisiana State Police, the Caddo Parish Sheriff and Shreveport Police Department, is to find a workable solution to the the offer of Caddo Sheriff Steve Prator to assist the SPD in fighting the recent surge of violent crime in the city.
