Drug investigations become cash for Bossier City Police | Crime
Thanks to all the hard work done by the Bossier City Police Department to keep drugs off the streets, the department added just over $18,000 to its bank account.
District Attorney Schuyler Marvin handed Bossier City Police Chief Shane McWilliams a check for $18,114, which came from the cars, money, and other property seized during 12 narcotics investigations.
The check to the police department was 60% of the total amount of assets seized by authorities. Twenty percent of the total amount goes to the district attorney's office, and the other 20% goes to the Bossier Parish Criminal Court Fund. A few days earlier, the Bossier Parish Sheriff's Office received a check for just over $5,500.
The Bossier City Police Department will use the money to help pay for future drug enforcement operations by the Bossier Combined Narcotics Task Force. Chief McWilliams and Bossier Parish Sheriff Julian Whittington formed the task force in October of last year by bringing narcotics agents with both agencies together to form a single drug fighting unit for Bossier City and Bossier Parish.
