Last year, we took a look at the safest neighborhoods across the Shreveport area for the summer, and we heard from a lot of people who live or work in those neighborhoods. We also heard from people in other neighborhoods who didn't agree with the information.

But, the information is pretty solid, neighborhoodscout.com uses a locked-in equation to develop this data. Here's their quote on their methodology:

"...developed for each neighborhood using our mathematical algorithms and crime statistics from more than 18,000 local law enforcement agencies."

So we decided to look back at this solid research, and update any changes that may have taken place between 2016 and 2017. When we checked it out, we found one right away, and decided to start looking deeper.

Here are the 5 neighborhoods who ranked at the top of their list for 2017:
