Rhonda Findley started this petition to Governor John Bel Edwards and

New Orleans crime rates and in particular property crimes, robbery and carjackings at gunpoint are rampant. Everyday our neighbors and friends are being violently assaulted and targeted because the criminals know there is not enough protection.

The New Orleans police department has 450 +|~ fewer officers meaning your neighborhood precincts are understaffed. Call back logs spill over day to day - that’s why the police don’t show up to your crime scene. It’s not that they don’t want to! It’s that there aren’t enough officers to do the job! Nopd officers and leadership are stretched thin.

Residents seek safety and peace of mind. We do not  have it and our calls for help go unanswered. It’s lack of resources. New a Orleans is not currently able to provide police protection appropriate to the needs of the city. 

Therefore this petition requests the Governor of Louisiana and the Mayor of New Orleans immediately deploy a minimum of 500 active duty La. National Guard members to provide policing presence on the streets of New Orleans to allow NOPD to focus on violent crime solutions, quality of life residents issues, and the task of aggressive recruiting and training of NOPD officers .

The guard should stay in New Orleans until 400 positions are filled and or NOPD ranks rerun to 90 percent of the personnel needed to protect the tax paying citizens . 


UPDATE : solutions are needed and opening a dialogue to resolve our lack of police officers with the community stakeholders is a huge part of resolving this issue … many if you have voiced different paths … everything is on the table. Our elected leaders must include us in the fight for a safe New Orleans
