Bossier Sheriff Whittington to deploy ‘Sheriff’s Safe Shopper Program’

PRESS RELEASE Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington will deploy a special holiday safety program at midnight on Thanksgiving and continue through the end of the year aimed at keeping shoppers safe and secure at busy shopping centers this holiday season.

Dubbed “Sheriff’s Safe Shopper Program,” the initiative will augment the Armed Robbery Task Force implemented by the Bossier Sheriff’s Office and Bossier City Police Department over the holiday shopping period to provide additional safety and security throughout Bossier Parish and Bossier City.

“During this time of year, we realize the need for extra patrols and law enforcement presence at businesses and shopping areas,” said Sheriff Whittington. “With Sheriff’s Safe Shopper Program, our deputies will focus on areas and parking lots with high shopper presence, providing safety and security to shoppers and prevent vehicle break-ins. We will have increased visibility in busy shopping areas to assist shoppers and deter criminal activity.”

The program will be conducted in coordination with the Armed Robbery Task Force, the Bossier Parish Sheriff’s Office and Bossier City Police Department. While the Sheriff’s Safe Shopper Program concentrates on the safety of shoppers in parking lots and other busy areas, the Armed Robbery Task Force focuses on protecting stores, businesses, gas stations and areas with high incidents or probability of robbery.
