Police lights by night

Baton Rouge police is adding more than 70 patrol cars to help replenish their depleted fleet.

The Metro Council allocated funds for the department to add 35 unmarked units and 38 new marked units after the 2016 floods destroyed nearly 100 units.

The BRPD took to social media to thank the mayor-president, Metro Council and taxpayers for their assistance.
