We have had a few tough months in the Shreveport area. At times, it feels like the violent crimes outnumber the days on the calendar.

But it's not all bad. There are good people in Shreveport, great schools, and great neighborhoods. Sometimes it can feel like that part gets lost in all of the negative news we see.

Instead of looking at the 'bad' stories, this time we checked out neighborhoodscout.com to get the lowdown on which Shreveport neighborhoods are the safest. Here are the 4 neighborhoods who ranked at the top of their list:
