LCPD recruitment drive: applicants prove they have what it takes

Good Afternoon,

Lee Peck in the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we are working on this Saturday.

Nearly 100 men and women showed up for a chance to become a Lake Charles Police officer. KPLC's Monica Grimaldo was there for the LCPD recruitment drive as applicants tried to prove they have what it takes to wear the badge.

Plus, the region's largest boat and RV show is underway at the Lake Charles Civic Center. We'll show the big ticket items. We also catch up with "Duck Dynasty's" Justin Martin, who stopped by for the big show.

Also, it's the last day of competition at the Calcasieu Parish Junior Livestock Show. But as KPLC's Haley Rush reports… they saved the best for last. She'll have a full recap of today's events.

And they are some of the most talented musicians in the state of Louisiana and they're performing at McNeese State University. Consisting of 87 college musicians representing 9 universities, KPLC's Erica Bivens brings you the performance of the Louisiana Honor Band.

Still a little on the cool side, but definitely a nice start to our weekend. What does Sunday hold? Meteorologist Zack Fradella has the forecast.

We'll see you tonight at Six. Until then, we're always on at kplctv.com.
