BATON ROUGE, LA (WVLA) -- It's an effort to get answers to what appears to be a growing crime problem in district ten, which encompasses part of downtown Baton Rouge.
Councilwoman Tara Wicker organized the meeting to be held in the evening on Tuesday, Oct. 12 at Dufrocq Elementary. She spoke about how to identify and curb crime in district ten, because there has been multiple shootings in that area within the past month.
The people who attended this meeting were asked to attend in t-shirts and jeans in order to "roll up their sleeves" and work collectively as a group.
Wicker says it's not just enough to talk about the crime problem, you have to address it to keep your neighborhoods safe.
