Bossier Sheriff’s Office to Join National Crackdown on Drunk Drivers
From now through Labor Day, the Bossier Sheriff's Office will be cracking down on drunk driving. It's part of the nationwide "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" campaign.
Starting today, and running through September 2nd, Bossier deputies will be aggressively looking for drunk drivers and Sheriff Julian Whittington says they'll arrest anybody caught driving drunk. The sheriff says his deputies will provide high-visability enforcement and saturation patrols throughout the parish to get impaired drivers off the streets and reduce the number of crashes and fatalities.
