Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) — "Operation Brave" is officially underway in the Capitol City today.
The crime fighting initiative is sending five Baton Rouge police officers into the city's most crime riddled area: the 70805 zip code.
They are working with community and religious members to reduce violent and drug crimes in the area.
The zip code accounts for more than thirty percent of all homicides in the city.
