NOPD ICES ICE

NOPD Shifts Policy on Immigrants



On February 28th, the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) initiated a new policy regarding how the department cooperates with undocumented people living within the city. The purpose of the revision is “to set forth the policy of the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) to provide police services to all persons within New Orleans regardless of their immigration status.” Simply put, the Department will no longer assist with immigraiton enforcement.

The Lawsuit, Enforcement, Vaping, & a Party on the Eve if the Ban



New Orleans nightlife is about to change. Councilmember LaToya Cantrell likens the shift the integration of Carnival. Others liken it to the government’s history of fiscal mismanagement. Either way, on Tuesday (4.21), smoking indoors will be illegal in NOLA. But what about that lawsuit? How is anyone going to enforce this law? And, where’s the party? NoDef has your answers.


State Police Extend Stay


Like many visitors to the French Quarter, the State Police came for a short visit and then decided to stay a little longer. Colonel Michael Edmonson, Superintendant of the State Police, said that the number of State Police will decline "a little" but that they will continue to maintain patrols and presence downtown. Originally, the detail was scheduled to depart on Labor Day.
