BCPD, officer honored for DWI enforcement
The Bossier City Police Department and one of its officers have received honors for their efforts last year in enforcing Louisiana’s drunk driving laws.
Patrol Officer Steven Jones was recognized by the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission for making 40 DWI arrests in 2013.
The Bossier City Police Department also received an award from the commission for tallying the highest number of DWI arrests by a municipal police department based on jurisdictional population.
In 2013, the Bossier City Police Department made a total of 255 DWI arrests.
The awards were presented during the annual LSHC DWI Enforcement Award Program Ceremony luncheon held Tuesday in Baton Rouge.
The event’s keynote speaker was Col. Mike Edmonson, superintendent of the Louisiana State Police.
