Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington, along with representatives from 11 other area law enforcement agencies, took part in a swearing in ceremony for Devarjaye “DJ” Daniel on Wednesday. DJ is a 12-year-old young man from the Houston area who is battling terminal cancer but has set a goal to be sworn in by 1,000 law enforcement agencies across the country. After the ceremony, DJ’s total had climbed to 834 agencies. While in Bossier, DJ also got to take a spin in the BSO airboat with Lt. Billy Jones and took a tour of BCPD and Ranchland Uniforms with Capt. Doug Lauter and Deputy Cedric Payne.
