Bossier Sheriff’s Office Kicks Off “Operation Clean Sweep”
Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington and community leaders gathered together on West Viking Drive underneath the I-220 overpass for the annual Operation Clean Sweep kickoff press conference and public safety announcement video shoot.
“Public safety is my biggest concern and it is a proven fact that in dirty, trashy parishes and cities, there’s more crime,” said Sheriff Whittington. This is the tenth year of the clean-up campaign to clean up the Bossier Parish.
Bossier City Mayor Tommy Chandler and the Bossier Parish Police Jury will provide a way for Bossier parish citizens to dispose of large items free of cost from 8:00 a.m.-to 12 p.m. at the Airline High School parking lot. No hazardous waste, such as paints, oils, and other hazardous liquids will be accepted.
Keep Bossier Beautiful Director Lynn Bryan says this is a great opportunity for everyone in the parish to roll up their sleeves and help clean up our parish. “This year Operation Clean Sweep parish-wide clean-up will be in conjunction with a state-wide campaign, Love the Boot, and that makes me proud,” said Bryan.
Organizers say Operation Clean Sweep will begin on April 23rd, 2022 in the neighborhoods where residents live and work. Afterward, they can come to the Viking Drive Substation, 2510 Viking Drive, at 11:30 a.m. to celebrate with a crawfish boil and burgers for lunch. Shane's Seafood and BBQ will prepare and serve 700 pounds of crawfish that are provided by Louisiana Seafood. The Rotary Club of Bossier City will be on the grill cooking up burgers and hotdogs.
