Bossier Parish Night Out Set For October 1, 2013
Bossier Parish Night Out is coming up on Tuesday, Oct. 1, from 6:00 - 9:00 p.m. and Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington is hoping to see residents in the Bossier parish join in on all the fun.
What is Bossier Parish Night Out?
“Bossier Parish Night Out is a night for people in neighborhoods all over Bossier Parish to stand united against crime," said Whittington. “It’s designed to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness and strengthen partnerships between our neighbors and law enforcement. I encourage residents to hold block parties, cook outs or other outdoor activities to help build strong bonds with their neighbors and get to know the deputies who patrol their area.”
Bossier Parish Sheriff's Office, along with Bossier City Police Department, Shreveport Police Department and Caddo Parish Sheriff's Office, moved their Night Out events to October in order to enjoy the event during the cooler weather. Traditionally, National Night Out is held the first Tuesday in August.
If you are interested in having a block party in your neighborhood for Bossier Parish Night Out, please contact Dep. Josh Cagle at 208-4327 or 965-2203 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
