Operation Clean Sweep

Posted: Updated:
BOSSIER PARISH, La. (KTBS) -

Bossier Sheriff's Office deputies, staff, community volunteers and members of "Keep Bossier Beautiful" took a couple of hours Saturday morning to clean up areas of Bossier City. It's all part of "Operation Clean Sweep" a cleanup effort created by Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington, Bossier Mayor Lo Walker, Bossier Parish Police Jury, Louisiana Department of Transportation and other local organizations. Crews will be out mowing, picking up trash and street sweeping over the coming days to beautify Bossier Parish in preparation for the air show later this month. Bossier Sheriff Whittington encourages everyone to do their part...first, by not littering, and second, to pick up litter when you see it. Supporting the cleanup today was the Sheriff's CERT team, Young Marines, deputies from various divisions and community volunteers. The group picked up about four dozen bags of trash, and even found $40 in cash that was given to the Young Marines.
