Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington encourages residents and neighborhoods throughout Bossier Parish to participate in Bossier Parish National Night Out on Tuesday, Oct. 5, from 5:30 – 8:30 p.m.
National Night Out is designed to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness and strengthen partnerships between our neighbors and law enforcement. “I encourage residents to hold block parties, cookouts, or other outdoor activities to help build strong relationships with their neighbors and get to know the deputies who patrol their area,” said Sheriff Whittington.
Bossier Sheriff’s Office deputies will be out and about meeting residents. Posse members will be out fingerprinting children, joined by Bossier Sheriff’s Office motorcycle patrol, K-9 team, mounted patrol and parish firefighters and EMTs.
There are 13 scheduled block parties in the parish. If you are planning to host a block party next year in your neighborhood for National Night Out, contact Dep. Rod White at (318) 935-2025 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
