The Natchitoches Police Department is once again calling the Additional Street Patrol Team (or A.S.P. Team) into service. This team will focus on areas that are a threat to public safety throughout the City. During their activation, A.S.P. will be working in areas that have recently seen a lot of “shots-fired calls”, noted areas of suspected drug activity, as well as locations that have experienced an increase in burglaries and thefts. This team will be working in conjunction with all traffic and patrol shifts as they add additional officers on the street serving the public.
Adding additional Officers to our streets will increase the chances of apprehending these individuals that violate the law. Individuals who violate the law will then be arrested and referred to the District Attorney’s office for prosecution.
The Natchitoches Police Department is strongly encouraging the public to report criminal behavior by calling 318-352-8101, or by submitting an anonymous tip through our website. The Police Department is giving 110% to capture these bad guys but we cannot be everywhere and cannot see everything as it happens. We need the public’s eyes and ears to supplement a law enforcement presence.
“If you see it, report it.”
