Community Crime Walk on Wednesday, July 31 at 6pm

Join Commander Walls for our monthly Community Anti-Crime Walk on Wednesday, July 31st at 6pm. We will begin at St. Roch and Royal, proceed on Royal to Marigny, to Chartres, ending at Chartres and Franklin.

The community walks provide you with an opportunity to meet and interact with the police that serve your area and spread the message that the police and community stand together in our efforts to combat violence. As we walk, we provide vital Crimestoppers information and leaflets to citizens we encounter. The walk is held simultaneously in all police districts to show solidarity of our effort throughout the police department.

The NOPD Citizens Academy Wants You!

The 8-week program begins on Wednesday, August 21, 2013. Sessions are held every Wednesday from 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm at the Special Operations Division Compound located at 1899 Tchoupitoulas Street in New Orleans.

The Citizen’s Police Academy is a program designed to provide citizens with information on various functions of the NOPD and the criminal justice system. The academy does not teach citizens how to become police officers. The program consists of various topics, which will be presented by several police officers and other city officials and leaders.

Some of the topics that will be discussed are: Communications Division (complaint calls); Community Policing (Neighborhood Watch, Crimestoppers); Public Integrity Bureau (complaints against police officers); Domestic Violence (laws and police procedures); Special Investigations (various criminal investigations), Crime Lab Division (evidence collection); Education and Training Academy (probable cause, search and seizure); Crime Prevention Unit (programs and functions) as well as several other topics.

The application can be found at the bottom of the press release: http://clicks.skem1.com/preview/?c=15553&g=7584&p=a72a455679325d6d706c91f620a8dbc7&utm_source=contactology&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Citizen%27sPoliceAcademy-NewOrleansPoliceDepartment%27sCrimePreventionUnit

French Quarter Group Helps NOPD with Crime Cameras – Fox8

http://www.fox8live.com/story/22952709/french-quarter-group-helping-nopd-with-crime-cameras

SafeCams8 is a public safety project of the French Quarter Management District (FQMD) in partnership with the New Orleans Police Department’s 8th District.

The goal of SafeCams8 is to develop a comprehensive list of all the privately owned video surveillance cameras in the 8th District that record activities occurring on a street or sidewalk. The list will allow the 8th District to expeditiously contact a camera owner or operator when police access to a camera's footage is needed to solve a crime or facilitate an investigation.

Participation in SafeCams8 is voluntary. There is no obligation to maintain a camera's video surveillance capability or to provide video footage to the NOPD.

To register your surveillance camera(s), visit: http://fqmd.org/safecams8-nopdfix.html.  If a camera owner or operator would prefer to send the SafeCams8 registration information to the 8th District by email instead, please email the information to bwshubert@nola.gov.

If you are considering installing cameras and need some advice or would like more information on SafeCams8, send an email to Robert Simms at robertsimms@cox.net  or Larry Lane at safecams8@aol.com.
