8TH District Substation Dedication Ceremony on Saturday, November 16

Who: Family and Friends of Detective Robert E. Williams

What: Naming of 8th District Substation in Honor of Detective Robert E. Williams and Presentation to two NOPD Officers. This will be followed by a celebratory reception for everyone to fellowship and recall fond memories of Detective Williams.

When: Saturday, November 16, 2013 at 12pm

Where: The Healing Center, 2372 St. Claude Avenue

We invite you to join us as we name the 8th District Substation in honor of 8th District Detective Robert E. Williams. 

Detective Williams spent his entire 10-year NOPD career in the 8th District. He was a police officer with a reputation for tireless service. His patience and familiarity with the residents and business owners of the 8th District fostered lasting relationships of trust and respect.

In 1999, Robert would meet his future wife, Debbie, in the historic French Quarter; the two would marry in February 2002. Within a month of their marriage, Robert suffered a break to his collarbone. After testing, he received a diagnosis of multiple myeloma. The prognosis was grim: the illness was in its third and most severe stage, and had already spread to 80% of his body. Robert immediately began treatment, subsequently undergoing a bone marrow transplant from his only sibling, his brother, NOPD Sergeant Eric Williams.

The next six years were marked with both hope and despair, a roller coaster of life with cancer. With almost super-human determination, Robert continued on the police force, even during the dark days of Hurricane Katrina. At the same time, he and Debbie became dedicated advocates for improved insurance and healthcare coverage for all NOPD officers. Robert and Debbie’s diligence were rewarded when the City’s policies were increased by 100% and amended to include catastrophic coverage for all subscribers.

Robert fought valiantly against multiple myeloma for many years, but ultimately lost his battle in December 2007.

Robert E. Williams Memorial Fund Presentation to Two NOPD Officers

After his death, Robert’s wife, Debbie, founded the Robert E. Williams Memorial Fund, which benefits NOPD officers who have suffered from an illness or other life setback that would be considered critical or catastrophic. Debbie will make a presentation to two NOPD officers at this event.

Register Your Surveillance Cameras with the 8th District

Fox 8 Story:

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: 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

If you are considering installing cameras and need some advice or would like more information on SafeCams8, send an email to Robert Simms at or Larry Lane at
