CENTRAL- Police officers will, for the first time, be writing tickets to people who disobey traffic laws.

In the past, no city court meant Central Police could not write tickets. Now, the department has a deal worked-out with the District Attorney in East Baton Rouge Parish. It allows for the department to write citations.

Police Chief Doug Browning told WBRZ News 2, people began to complain too often about traffic problems that he had to do make changes and start writing tickets.
