SAPD Cautious Following Baton Rouge Shootings

Three Baton Rouge police officers killed by gunman Sunday, three others wounded…

…it’s the latest in a string of violence against law enforcement.

“Again, unheard of,” SAPD Chief William McManus said of the shooting. “I’ve never seen anything like it.”

He offered condolences to the officers, their families, and the city of Baton Rouge.

“It’s a bad time in law enforcement right now, with all this going on,” he said.

Everyone is on edge.

“What we’re doing is, we’re pushing as much intelligent to the street as we can, so the officers have situational awareness of what’s going on,” the chief said.

And telling his officers to be careful and stay aware of what’s going on around them.
