Homeowners pay for extra security in neighborhood
BATON ROUGE - The Metro Council is set to renew Concord Estates Subdivision as a crime prevention district.
Homeowners will pay a fee of a little under $70 a year to pay for additional patrols to the neighborhood.
"We thought it would be best to get security," says Homeowner's Association President Harry Johnson, "in addition to what's provided for the city." He explains.
The neighborhood has been renewed as a crime prevention district twice since 2004.
Two additional officers patrol the neighborhood.
