Should Shreveport Mayor Have SPD Escorts?

Ollie Tyler has Shreveport Police Department escorts when she is conducting city business—both night and day. Seven days a week.

Shreveport tax payers pick up this cost.

Corporeal Michael Dunn is assigned to Tyler during the day shift.

Dunn is relieved by other community liaison officers and/or community resource unit officers at nights and on weekends.

These SPD members are on duty, adjusted duty assignment , or overtime.

Former mayor Cedric Glover purchased a suburban for city use. This vehicle is still utilized by Tyler with SPD drivers.

If Adrian Perkins is elected mayor, whether or not he will use SPD escorts is an open question.

Since Perkins served 3 combat tours, seemingly he will feel “safe” going to city events not at city hall.
