Bossier City crime stats down for 6th year in a row
Bossier City, La (KMSS) — Every year, the Bossier City Police Department hopes that their crime statistics will be lower than the previous year, and in 2012, just like the 5 previous years, they accomplished that mission.
In 2012, there were a total of 10,098 crimes reported to police, significantly lower than the 10,534 crimes reported in 2011. Not only were all crimes down from 2011, violent crimes were down as well.
The police department works hard to keep crime in the city down, attributing it to two main things: the hard work of patrol officers, and also the great relationship they have with the public.
The city thinks that people in the city respect the police department and the work that they do, and because of that, many people are willing to give police tips and also let them know when they notice suspicious behavior happening.
For 2013 and every year, the police department would like for crimes to be at zero, but they know that isn't likely, so they'll settle for just having less crime than they had in 2012.
