In December I did a blog post on the police presence at the Boardwalk.
The blog post went into the question of Bossier City providing regularly assigned officers to assist private security.
It appears that is about to change. Effective July 10th, according to my sources, the officers will be reassigned to street duty and only one full time officer, a sergeant, will be assigned to the Boardwalk as a liaison officer. Other officers, of course, will be available for backup as needed, as they would in any other situation.
I'm told that members of the city council suggested the change in order to get more officers on patrol in the city.
I'm also told that John Good has a meeting scheduled with Mayor Walker to discuss the situation. Obviously, from what I hear, he is not a happy camper.
My information is from a couple of second hand sources. As with most announcements that come out on a Friday, particularly on a three day weekend, it is difficult to verify until the following week. That's why they release it on Friday.
I will attempt to verify this and get complete information on Tuesday.
