Keeping kids safe is everyone's business
Founded by Sheriff Steve Prator in 2008, Sheriff's Safety Town, located in Shreveport, Louisiana, is the first and only permanent program in the state to promote early childhood safety education.
Prior to being elected Sheriff of Caddo Parish in 1999, Steve Prator served as Chief of Police for the city of Shreveport. During that time, he promoted and expanded a two-week program the City designed to teach young children the importance of being safety minded, especially when riding bikes and walking in their neighborhoods. An added benefit was the positive interaction between officers and children that helped establish a strong relationship between law enforcement and the communities they serve.
