The mission of each NOPD Police Community Advisory Board (PCAB) is to develop and maintain a partnership with the New Orleans Police Department for the purpose of engaging in a collaborative problem-solving process that supports both the community and the police department’s desire to enhance public safety. This is an effort to reduce crime and to enhance the quality of life for all citizens through positive and open communication. Each PCAB is created to facilitate interaction between NOPD and a committee of citizens which is a diverse, yet representative entity, derived from a wide section of the community. The Board will assist NOPD in establishing the highest standards for police accountability and therefore, increase the public’s trust.
Participants: DOJ Community Relations, U.S. Attorney’s Office, Eastern District of Louisiana, NOPD, Community members representing the 8 NOPD Districts.
