Tanisha Sykes is a New Orleans native, a mother of three and an accomplished detective in the NOPD Homicide Division. But there’s one title she’s been after for a while now—homeowner.
The NOPD kicked off training for its newest recruit class with a total of 39 recruits, the largest class held since the department launched the "Get Behind the Badge" hiring campaign in 2013.
Local McDonald's owners are stepping up to help spread the word that the NOPD is hiring.
Building on a successful year of growing the department in 2015, the NOPD graduated 28 recruits from the Training Academy.
The mission of the New Orleans Police Department is to provide professional police services to the public in order to maintain order and protect life and property. In order to accomplish our mission, we are committed to the philosophy of Community Oriented Policing as a means to inform our organizational decisions and prioritize our crime fighting and quality of life initiatives by engaging each neighborhood and community organization in collaborative problem-solving partnerships. We are committed to integrating community and problem-oriented policing into our daily management principles, policies, procedures, recruitment efforts, training, personnel selection, performance evaluation process, resource deployment, tactics and accountability systems.
