Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington says agents with the Bossier Combined Narcotics Task Force of the Bossier Sheriff’s Office and the Bossier City Police Department checked seven businesses in the city and parish last Thursday evening, Jan. 16, to ensure they were not selling alcohol to customers under the age of 21.
Property crimes saw a decrease of 40 cases in 2013, down from 565 in 2012 to 525 in 2013, largely due to a significant decline in the number of residential and business burglaries. Residential and business burglaries went down by half, from 59 cases to 30 cases and from 11 to six cases, respectively.
“Our combined narcotics team does an outstanding job in keeping illegal drugs off of the streets of Bossier Parish,” said Sheriff Whittington. “These funds presented by the DA’s Office represent a lot of hard work by our team and will help with our continued fight against illegal drug and criminal activity.
The training is provided free of charge and is limited to 40 applicants. Although there is no cost for the training, the sheriff’s office is asking applicants to bring canned goods or non-perishable food items for Operation Blessing..
