BATON ROUGE - The residents of Glen Oaks will soon see a substantial increase in the number of East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Deputies patrolling their neighborhood.

Thursday, deputies were offered overtime pay to patrol the crime ridden area during peak crime hours, including overnight.

"They are going to see a viable constant presence of sheriff's deputies in that area. Not just now but in the future and forever," Maj. Lawrence McLeary.

Maj. McLeary said the same tactics used to fight crime in Gardere years ago will now be implemented in Glen Oaks. Instead of sitting in their cars, deputies will patrol the street by foot and bike.

The community reaction was somewhat skeptical. To find out how they react, watch the video above.
