Shreveport police pay raise battle heats up:
The battle over pay raises for Shreveport police officers took center stage at Tuesday's council meeting.
Under Councilman Bryan Wooley's proposal, officers would receive a starting salary of around $36,000. The mayor has criticized the plan, saying the money is not available. And, after a long debate, the council approved the pay increase, by a vote of four to three.
COMMENT FROM RON YORKLet's hear it for Bryan Wooley. He took the heat and got the job done. A toast to Bryan, a friend of law enforcement.
