NONPACC Meeting and Free Gun Locks

 

Please join Commander Walls for our monthly NONPACC community meeting on Thursday, October 10th at 6pm, at the Maison Dupuy Hotel, 1001 Toulouse Street. NONPACC meetings provide citizens with the opportunity to meet and interact with the police that serve your area as well as learn about crime fighting strategies and upcoming events.

The 8th District has a limited supply of gun-safety locks that have been provided by The Childsafe Program, in association with the National Shooting Sports Foundation. The gun locks are for any citizen who would like to use the device to secure their gun(s) as a safety and crime prevention measure. They are free of charge and available while supplies last.

Gun locks will be available at the NONPACC Meeting and at the front desk of the 8th District station (334 Royal Street).

Register Your Surveillance Cameras with the 8th District

Fox 8 Story: 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.
