BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33)- More police officers are patrolling the streets of Baton Rouge to combat the recent spike in shootings. This year, Baton Rouge has seen nearly 3 times more murders--- than during the same time last year. The people who are used to seeing crime scene tape wrapped around their neighborhoods say they want more action and answers from BRPD. Sgt. Don Stone says they’ve already put out 10 detectives to patrol the streets starting last night—and they won’t stop working over time until the killings stop.
