Nearly two dozen neighborhoods throughout Bossier Parish hosted block parties for Bossier Parish National Night Out. Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington and deputies joined residents at their block parties throughout the parish.
Whittington kicked off the night’s celebration at the Kingston Plantation subdivision block party, located at the 100 block of Colonel Burt Boulevard in Benton.
“We always look forward to National Night Out because it gives us a chance to directly visit with the people we serve,” said Whittington. “Folks have shown tremendous support for our deputies over the past few months in light of national events, and we so appreciate how our residents have rallied behind the ‘Thin Blue Line’.”
There were 23 events held throughout the parish with deputies at each location, Posse members, motorcycle patrol, K-9 teams, mounted patrol and parish firefighters at some.
