In May 2012, Mayor Mitch Landrieu announced a major step forward in his efforts to reform the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) by creating the Office of Police Secondary Employment (OPSE). This independent organization manages secondary employment for police officers and is a key part of the federal consent decree used to guide systemic reform of the NOPD. The OPSE centralizes oversight and shifts responsibility for all aspects of police secondary employment from the individual officer to the city-managed office. This frees officers of any administrative burden and allows the police department to focus on preventing, fighting, and investigating crime in our city while maintaining an important supplementary service for businesses and civic organizations and preserving additional earning potential for our officers.
