Youth Leadership students visit Bossier Sheriff’s Office
Thirty-five Bossier high school juniors in Bossier youth Leadership visited with deputies at the Bossier Sheriff’s Office Tuesday.
The students visited the North Louisiana Criminal Justice Academy, hosted by the Bossier Sheriff’s Office for the Government and Law Session.
Partnered by the Bossier Chamber of Commerce and the Bossier Parish School Board for the past 20 years, the schoolyear program allows selected high school juniors the opportunity to learn various aspects about business, government and quality-of-life issues.
Part of the tour included a visit to the Bossier Maximum Security Facility.
Sgt. Sarah Rhodes explained Louisiana drunk-driving laws, penalties and procedures.
The students also got a chance to experience a drunkdriving traffic stop by donning special “drunk goggles” that simulate the visual impairment resulting from a blood alcohol level of 0.08 percent. With their vision blurred, the students found even the relatively simple task of walking a straight line to be difficult.
