Criminal Division

The Criminal Division is considered the nuts and bolts of the Bossier Sheriff's Office. This division includes your basic law enforcement elements such as patrol, dispatch, and detectives.

One of the Criminal Division’s responsibility is to preserve peace by enforcing the laws on the highways and roads within the 860 square miles of the parish.

The patrol unit provides service to approximately 134,000 residents of Bossier Parish. The Sheriff’s motto of “Courteous, Professional, Responsive,” is the guiding force for deputies to focus their efforts on ways to reduce crime. They emphasize crime prevention, rather than responding after a crime has been committed.

It also encompasses the SWAT team and special units such as the motorcycle and marine patrol units.
