Monroe Police needs the community's to help with new program

Posted: Updated:

MONROE, La. (KNOE 8 News)- Chief Quentin Holmes made it very clear that his department plans to fight crime and make Monroe a safer place.


The department implemented RAP, it stands for residential assistance program. The program will allow investigators to be more hands on in communities where burglaries take place.

Four investigators will hit the streets once a week in areas where burglaries have taken place.

During these visits they will develop leads and gather information from residents. Department leaders believe rap will let residents see first hand that officers are working.

Chief Holmes got the idea from Durham, NC. where the program reduced burglaries by 30%.

The RAP program started here in January. So far the department has made 7 arrests and solved 10 burglaries.
