Sheriff’s Safety Town
The Junior League of Shreveport-Bossier began its partnership with Sheriff’s Safety Town in 2008. In celebration of its 75th anniversary of serving the community, the JLSB donated $75,000 to assist in the construction of this unique educational facility. The funds were used to construct an outdoor pavilion in the heart of the Safety Town neighborhood. For more information about Sheriff’s Safety Town, please visit sheriffssafetytown.org.
