Police out in force for holidays
In Ruston, RPD Public Information Officer Lt. Curtis Hawkins said extra patrols will be planned, along with the possibility of DWI sobriety checkpoints. No specific date was given for heightened rounds, as measures are being arranged daily to ensure safety for the upcoming weeks.
“During the holiday season, we will be assigning extra patrol units looking for drunk drivers,” Hawkins said. “We’re making the schedules, and now through after New Year’s, we’ll be increasing patrols.”
Every holiday season throughout New Year’s is prime time for people to party and celebrate.
