After working alongside the Shreveport Police Department during Operation Santa Claus I have a newfound respect for our police officers. These officers work hard they keep us safe and make sure that our community becomes a better place to live in.

I am forever grateful that I have been able to spend time with several police officers and get to know them. From collecting money on the side of the road for Operation Santa Claus to spending time at the station and picking out toys for children in our area, time spent with our officers gives you a different perspective on life.

If you have never had the opportunity to sit and visit with a police officer you can change that. On Friday, February 22nd from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. you can visit with some of our Shreveport Police Officers.

It's Coffee With a Cop at RJ's Restaurant on 9124 Mansfield Road. Take your kids, take the whole family and take time to back the blue and visit with the folks who put their life on the line daily.
