A part of Baton Rouge gripped with fear won’t take it anymore.

The families of Beauregard town decided to get their own security after Alexandra Engler was murdered in her home last week.  Alexandra’s daughter Ariana was also shot six times before calling the police.

Recent break-ins topped with Friday's shooting motivated the Civic Association to finalize details with Baton Rouge Police Department on Monday to have extra duty police officers patrol the area.  Civic Association President Brian Goad said it's a matter a physical and psychological security.

Funding for the extra police patrols will also come from the community. The Civic Association added a place to make donations to the security fund on its Web site.  You can access it by clicking on this link.
