“NATIONAL NIGHT OUT – Tuesday, October 4, 2022”
Dear Bossier City Residents:
National Night Out, a unique crime/drug prevention event sponsored by the Bossier City Police Department, has been scheduled for TUESDAY, October 4, 2022 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. We cordially invite you and your neighborhood to participate and be part of our “2022 NATIONAL NIGHT OUT TEAM”.
NATIONAL NIGHT OUT is designed 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.
Between the hours of 6:00 and 9:00 p.m. on October 4, 2022 residents in neighborhoods throughout Bossier City are asked to lock their doors, turn on outside lights, and spend an evening outside with neighbors and police officers. Many neighborhoods will be hosting a variety of special events such as block parties, cookouts and visits from your police and fire departments. As in years past, if you are planning any event requiring a neighborhood street to be blocked, you must submit a petition to the Community Relations Division of the Bossier City Police Department with 51% of the residents’ signatures of the street to be blocked. This petition will be subject to approval by the Bossier City Police Department. Please limit the petitions for streets to be blocked to single block neighborhood streets and leave open major thoroughfares in your neighborhood for emergency vehicles and regular traffic. The Bossier City Police Department also requires that no alcohol be served at any National Night Out event.
Due to the large number of groups that registered last year, we are asking for your cooperation in filling out the attached “Participation Form” and returning it to the Community Relations Division at the address on the attached page. These forms and your petition must be returned to our office no later than Friday, September 30, 2022. If you have any questions regarding this event please call the Bossier City Police Department Training Division at 741-8330. Completed registration forms may also be faxed to 741- 8339 or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
