"Its also very important for people to feel safe when coming downtown and we`ve had a good record in the past of safety. And we want to continue to make downtown Shreveport a place where folks feel comfortable. In order to do that the D-D-A plans to install technology to keep a close eye on what people are doing. The cameras would be put in along the Red River entertainment district, around the convention center, and in the Spring street Market street corridor. Tourist Demerits Stewart welcomes the extra security. "Surveillance cameras would be nice around here keep a lot of people safe and a lot of people out of trouble." Some of those who visit the Red River district frequently say it`s not a bad idea to have police monitoring what`s going on, but at the sometime they feel the idea is an invasion of privacy. Meanwhile business managers say it might help eliminate panhandling in the Red River district. The downtown development authority allocated about sixty three thousand dollars for the security project. Theyre still trying to determine the exact location.
