How to Lessen the Likelihood of Being Victimized by a Robber

Street robbers search for victims who appear to have valuables, as well as those who appear to be the most vulnerable. Offenders also look for victims who seem unaware of their immediate surroundings. Pedestrians who look lost, are using a cell phone, are rummaging through their bags or listening to MP3 players might appear less alert and more vulnerable to street robbers than other people. Street robberies also tend to be more opportunistic and occur in more open and less predictable environments. (Excerpt from Street Robbery by K. Monk, J. Heinonen and J. Eck)

  • Be mindful of your surroundings and remember the address of your final destination.
  • Remember where you parked your car and park near the entrance or exit, if possible.
  • As you walk, look for landmarks, such as an open business that you may be able to retreat to, in case of emergency.
  • Walk confidently, with a purpose.
  • Travel in groups or pairs, whenever possible.
  • Don’t become distracted by cellular devices, cameras, MP3 players, etc.
  • Stay in well-lit and populated areas.
  • If consuming alcohol, know your limits, utilize a designated driver and ensure at least one member of your party remains sober to ensure everyone’s safety.
  • Be cautious when interacting with strangers.
  • Never leave drinks, food or property unattended.
  • Purses should be carried across the torso or on the shoulder, clutched tightly next to the torso.
  • When traveling without a purse, place important items in the front pocket.
  • If you observe anything suspicious or out of the ordinary, notify the police.

Register Your Surveillance Cameras with the NOPD

SafeCam NOLA is a NOPD initiative to enlist the help of community members in the fight against crime. Citizen-provided security camera footage is increasingly becoming an invaluable asset to NOPD, helping establish leads and identify perpetrators. By voluntarily registering your contact information with NOPD, detectives will know how to reach you if a crime occurs in the vicinity of your property. 

Registering your information does not provide NOPD with direct access to your camera. NOPD will only contact you if they believe your camera could contain evidence relevant to a criminal investigation. Evidence provided by your camera could mean the difference between bringing a perpetrator to justice versus leaving a crime unsolved.

To register your surveillance camera(s), visit: http://safecamnola.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).

--Register at NOPD Headquarters, located at 715 South Broad Street, Monday through Friday, 9am-4pm.
