Armed Robbery Task Force deploys for holiday season

1699

Now that the holiday shopping season has arrived the Bossier City Police Department has activated its Armed Robbery Task Force to help deter business armed robberies and other crimes that have the potential to increase during this time of year.

Officers assigned to the task force patrol Bossier City businesses including busy retail shopping centers to provide an increased law enforcement presence in and around these locations.

The Bossier City Police Department has utilized its Armed Robbery Task Force each year during the holiday shopping season since 1987. Overtime expenses to fund the task force are covered by a grant from the United States Justice Department.
