New Orleans Police Chief, Serpas's Crime Placarding Fails To Stick
Written by 

city hallYesterday, what sounded like a good idea to show the Landrieu's Administration fight against crime has become today's withdrawn NOPD policy. or one that just didn't have the requisite political "stickiness".

New Orleans Police Department Superintendent, Ronal Serpas has issued a statement reversing a new policy that would have put orange notice stickers or placards on certain houses

.The idea was opposed by various groups including the ACLU.

Here is the Superintendent's statement:

New Orleans Police Department- Public Information Office - A Statement from the Superintendent

“The NOPD will not implement the placarding strategy.  The intent of this pilot program was specifically to inform anonymous callers that the NOPD had acted on their tips and to encourage more anonymous reporting of illegal drug activity through Crimestoppers.  These tips to Crimestoppers have been a very successful tool for many years, but the NOPD is routinely asked if we have acted upon these anonymous tips. 
“I recognize that without widespread community support, the placarding strategy will not be successful, so we will not move forward.  We believe buy-in from the community on policing strategies is vital, so we will continue to engage the public as we develop new policies and programs through Police Community Advisory Boards. The NOPD will continue to find ways to notify the community of our efforts to rid their neighborhoods of drugs.”
Superintendent Ronal Serpas

    Edwards got some rough treatment from a congressional committee in Washington, D.C. when he testified before it recently about the state’s response to flood problems.
