Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) — Representative Regina Barrow is putting the quality of life in the Glen Oaks area of Baton Rouge under the microscope.
She wrote House Bill #351, which would create the Glen Oaks Crime Prevention District. The five member panel would study crime in the area and come up with suggestions to calm the violence.
The bill has been filed in the house, but Barrow is still waiting to introduce it to a committee, saying she's holding off on moving the bill forward until she gets more support from other community leaders.
