Bossier City wins award for DWI efforts
The Bossier City Police Department was recognized today for its efforts in enforcing drunk driving laws during 2010 under an annual grant administered by the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission. The 2010 grant amount was $15,854 which was used to fund operations of the BCPD’s DWI Task Force and sobriety checkpoints. As a result of those operations Bossier City police made a total of 360 DWI arrests for the year, the highest number of DWI arrests made by a municipal police department that participated in the LHSC grant based on jurisdictional population.
The award was presented to the Bossier City Police Department during the 3rd Annual LHSC DWI Enforcement Award Program Ceremony Luncheon held in Baton Rouge today. Lt. Governor Jay Dardenne and State Police Superintendent Col. Mike Edmonson participated in the ceremony honoring more than 40 individual officers and agencies.
