Shreveport Police and Union Pacific team up to save lives


 Shreveport Police Department and Union Pacific Railroad will conduct a joint safety operation this morning.                                   

On Tuesday, April 16, 2013, officers with the department’s Field Services Bureau will team up with officials from Union Pacific Railroad to conduct a railroad crossing safety check known as “Operation Life Saver”.  The safety check will run from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and officers will be proactively addressing crossing violations as well any other violations that would compromise the safety of the motoring public.


This effort was initiated to keep motorists safe and reduce the number of car and train crashes caused by drivers violating traffic laws pertaining to railroad crossings.  Members of our local media are encouraged to come out and see first hand how Union Pacific Railroad and the Shreveport Police Department are working hard to make Shreveport a safer place.


Officers will meet for a brief roll call at 8:00 a.m. at the Union Pacific Railroad’s Hollywood Avenue yard, located on East Jewella Road just off of Hollywood Avenue. Please contact Cpl. Marcus Hines at (318)525-5066 for further information

One million dollars down the drain to pay for a special session of the Louisiana legislature. And all for naught. The governor is hollering that the financial sky is falling and the state is in dire fiscal straights. Legislators protest that their hands are tied by too many constitutional dedications.

It was much to my amazement that literally hundreds of Ukrainian girls were actually interested in me. Throughout each day, I would receive e-mails from the agency, with each e-mail sending a message from a woman interested in dating me.
