BATON ROUGE --- Shreveport police officers are taking a stand at the state capitol this week.

Officials with the Shreveport Police Officers Association have traveled to Baton Rouge to try and save their retirement fund in Louisiana.

"Police officer fund their own retirement twice...first by contributing directly from [their] paycheck and then... again as local taxpayers", according to SPOA President Michael Carter.

Carter claims political contributors are pushing an anti-police officer agenda when it comes to officer retirement incomes. 

The SPOA plans to see each Louisiana lawmaker or their staff this week.

SPOA represents more than 500 officers in Shreveport.
