Bossier City is a community of around 68,000 residents located in northwest Louisiana, in the Shreveport metropolitan area. The Bossier City Police and Bossier Parish Sheriff’s Office have conducted web-based and street level reverse stings. The names, ages, and addresses of those arrested for soliciting prostituted women are reported in local news outlets, along with details of how the stings were conducted. For example, a reverse sting occurring in May 2013, resulted in the arrest of five sex buyers, whose names and photos were released to local media.
In 2013, the Louisiana John School program was launched which covers the Shreveport & Bossier City area. The program activity is located in Shreveport, and described on that DemandForum page, but accepts referrals from Bossier City and other communities throughout Louisiana.
