With spring just around the corner and warmer weather on the way, the Shreveport Police Department would like to take a moment to remind citizens to always keep safety in mind around their homes.
The police department recently has received complaints regarding people going door to door selling one thing or another, or asking for work.
Residents should always be wary of such solicitation attempts, and remember not to open their doors to any stranger. If someone knocks on the door trying to sell something, or offering to provide some service for you, you should immediately call the police department and request an officer to come investigate.
Many times these visits from strangers are simply ruses to facilitate criminal activity. Always err on the side of caution and never open your home to someone you do not know.
The non-emergency number for the Shreveport Police Department is (318) 673-BLUE (2583). Of course, if you need to report an emergency, please call 911.
Working together, we can continue to reduce crime in our neighborhoods and make Shreveport an even safer place to live, work, and play.
