From the Bossier Sheriff’s Office and BPT Newsroom Staff Reports:
Just over a week ago, The Simple Church came to the Bossier Sheriff’s Office with the idea to spread some Christmas cheer anonymously to drivers on the roadways this Christmas season. Simple Church presented the BSO traffic team with $1,000 total. Then, BSO traffic team deputies went out Dec. 16 to act as Secret Santa for those who could most likely use it most. The project was named “Operation Santa Surprise.” BSO deputies passed out $100 bills to motorists on Bossier Parish roadways.
The Simple Church showed part of the video at their church services on Christmas Eve and will also place it on their website and Facebook.
Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington is grateful for the staff and members of The Simple Church and their willingness to be a blessing to others this Christmas and was pleased his deputies could be a part in spreading some Christmas cheer to our residents.
The five deputies from the Bossier Sheriff’s Office Motorcycle Traffic Team and Patrol Commander who made the special deliveries are:
Sgt. Jeff Pleasants
Dep. Alex Ware
Dep. Jesse Bearden
Dep. Reigan Malmay
Dep. Tony Broadway
Capt. Corky Bridges – Patrol Commander
