BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Friday, East Baton Rouge leaders got together to discuss community policing in the community.
"It was a lot of passion, a lot of dialogue, but great conversation on moving us forward. It wasn't just another opportunity for people to just come and talk, but it was a meeting with a purpose," said Tara Wicker, East Baton Rouge metro council member.
Wicker says leaders discussed creating a community policing ambassador program. One of the goals would be to identify areas for residents to interact with police. Leaders are expected to meet again next week.
