A number of Bossier City neighborhoods are gearing up for Bossier City Night Out which takes place tomorrow night, October 5 between the hours of 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. Registrations this year have been a big success due likely to Bossier City moving its observance of National Night Out in from the heat of August to October when the weather is cooler. This year, 27 events have registered with the Bossier City Police Department. These events will have Bossier City residents joining others in Bossier and Caddo Parishes in turning on outside lights and spending an evening outdoors with neighbors, police officers and firefighters in this annual crime fighting effort.
The goal of Bossier City Night Out is to: (1) heighten crime and drug prevention awareness; (2) strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnership; and (3) send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
