Raise the salary for Shreveport police officers

This petition had 741 supporters

Shreveport crime remains high, yet the salary for Shreveport police is among the worst in the country. The Shreveport Police are the people who have volunteered to do a thankless job to keep our city safe. Unfortunately, our city does not seem to support them. This is unacceptable. We need to increase the salary to maintain a healthy police force and to show these officers that our support is not hollow. Therefore, we choose to take action and press our officials into action through the only thing that seems to motivate them - through votes. The Shreveport Police are closer to the poverty line than they are the national average for police officers. Police are an integral part to a functioning society and we will no longer sit by and watch our police department be disrespected by the city.
