Bossier City neighborhoods are gearing up for National Night Out, which takes place tomorrow night, October 6, 2015 between the hours of 6 p.m. and 9 p.m.
14 events are registered with the Bossier City Police Department that will bring residents together as they spend an evening outdoors with neighbors, police officers and firefighters in this annual crime fighting effort.
The goal of Shreveport-Bossier City Night Out is to: (1) heighten crime and drug prevention awareness; (2) strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnership; and (3) send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
