The City of New Orleans

Mayor Mitchell J. Landrieu

Police Community Advisory Board

About the Program


Founded to encourage police and community collaboration, the Police Community Advisory Boards (PCABs) provide a framework for community members to give feedback and recommendations to each of the eight police districts in New Orleans.  While the PCABs provide recommendations to the NOPD, they do not have any decision making authority over NOPD finances, policies, or practices.


There are eight PCABs across the city of New Orleans, representing each of the eight police districts. The seven members of each PCAB are citizen volunteers from their respective police districts who serve a one-year term during which they meet quarterly to address crime and quality of life issues.  For more detailed information about procedures and policies, view the PCAB Policy Manual.

Board Roles

  • Maintain a consistent partnership between the community and law enforcement
