Folks who spend time and money to do these studies figured out that Bossier Parish is a pretty healthy place to live ... kinda.

Caddo ranked 38th out of 64 parishes in health outcomes and 18th in health factors. Bossier Parish on the other hand ranked higher — fourth in health outcomes and eighth in health factors.

That means there are a higher number of risky health behaviors happening on one side of the river than on the other, according to the study. Risky health behaviors include smoking, excessive drinking, and sexually transmitted diseases.

I think it's pretty obvious why people smoke drink and do the dirty more in Caddo than Bossier ... b/c the Bossier City Police do NOT play!
