Shreveport Crime Stoppers are encouraging residents and local businesses to install cameras

Shreveport, LA – The president of the Caddo-Shreveport Crime Stoppers, Reed Ebarb, said:

“Cameras catch criminals and that is so true. Well over 85-90% of the videos we put on Crime Stoppers Facebook, we catch that person, and we get their identity. Because if you have it on camera, that is everything”

If you look down the Facebook page for Caddo-Shreveport Crime Stoppers, you will see a lot of video and images used to get help from the public to identify suspects.

He also mentioned that this year they have had close to 100 tips cleared by arrest. About 80% of those because of cameras.

Reed Ebarb also said:

“If we had more cameras out there, more cameras at businesses and at major intersections, if we had more camera’s at homes, we can continue to catch more criminals and bring down our crime rate in Shreveport.”
