Daylight Savings Time on Sunday, March 9

Reset your clocks as we “spring forward”. It’s also a great time to check the batteries in your smoke detectors.

Register Your Surveillance Cameras with the 8th District

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.

Register Your Bicycle with the NOPD

Registering your bicycle is simple and easy. A money order in the amount of $3.00 is required, to cover the cost of printing the license decals. The receipt from the purchase of the bike or a notarized statement of ownership is necessary. The bicycle must also be available for inspection before receiving the registration decal.

We now offer the following options for you to register your bicycle with the NOPD:

--Register at the 8th District station, located at 334 Royal Street, by appointment (email jrwilliams@nola.gov  or 504-658-6722).
