The "fight against blight" in local neighborhoods is continuing in Shreveport. Shreveport Police and property standards inspectors today hit the streets for the second week in a row.
This morning, crews addressed complaints in the Martin Luther King neighborhood in north Shreveport.
This effort is part of Shreveport Mayor Cedric Glover's "Operation T-Bone," which stands for "Taking Back Our Neighborhoods Everyday."
Part of the initiative includes regular sweeps in specific neighborhoods to address violations, serve warrants and connect citizens with their respective community liaison officers.
SPD Officer Robert Elliott, who was addressing some of the concerns this morning said, "Starting the week of Sept. 24th, the fine for parking in your yard is going to go up"
This is the fifth year for the initiative.
