Police on 12-hour shifts

As of an hour ago, there have been 17 arrests in Calcasieu Parish for looting-related crimes, according to spokesman Mark Kraus of the Lake Charles Police Department.

The LCPD is working 12-hour shifts of all available officers so that at any given time half the force is on the street. Asked about the main problems, Kraus said "mostly trees down, but we're having the main thoroughfares cleared. The streets have been a problem, but we've been managing."
