NEW RESERVE OFFICERS JOIN BOSSIER CITY POLICE DEPT
Nov. 25, 2014
Four new Bossier City Police Department reserve officers were sworn into the ranks during a ceremony that took place Wednesday night, November 19 at the Bossier City Public Safety Training Complex.
Chief Shane McWilliams issued the oaths of office to each officer marking the completion of their training in the Bossier City Police Department’s Reserve Officers Academy which began in August. The training encompassed three night sessions per week with additional sessions taking place on multiple Saturdays covering such areas as arrest procedure, firearms qualification and survival tactics among other aspect of law enforcement.
Bossier City reserve police officers are members of the community with regular “day jobs” who serve on a volunteer basis and have the same arresting authority as paid officers. They are trained and equipped to supplement and provide professional assistance to the patrol division during emergencies and special events. Reserve officers are also qualified to ride patrol, thus enabling the police department to put addition staffing on the streets at a minimal cost since reserve officers volunteer their services.
