BOSSIER PARISH, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – The Bossier Parish Sheriff’s office will hold a sobriety checkpoint this Monday somewhere in the parish.

According to BPSO, the sobriety checkpoint this Monday evening, May 29th, will start at 6 p.m., and continue to run some time into early Tuesday morning at an undisclosed location in Bossier Parish.
