Be Smart this New Year's Eve
Don't fire guns into the air
With New Year’s Eve upon us, the Shreveport Police Department would like to take this opportunity to remind everyone NOT to fire guns into the air in celebration of the New Year.
"The Shreveport Police Department wants to wish everyone a happy New Year’s Eve, but we also want to stress that our officers will be out there working hard to make it a safe New Year’s Eve.", said Bill Goodin, Chief Administrative Assistant. "While we want folks to be excited about ringing in the New Year, we encourage them to do it with fireworks and not firearms."
Please remember what goes up must come down, and that certainly applies to bullets shot into the air. While some may think they magically disappear, this is not the case, and innocent people can be hurt or killed as the result of falling projectiles.
Be responsible ringing in the New Year and use FIREWORKS NOT FIREARMS!
