NEW ORLEANS, LA—Today, Mayor Mitch Landrieu announced that he will host a community meeting on Monday, March 25, 2013, to discuss the continued reform of the New Orleans Police Department, including concerns about racial profiling, and efforts to reduce murder and violence in every neighborhood. The meeting will be held from 6:00 to 8:00pm at First Emmanuel Baptist Church, 1829 Carondelet Street, in Central City.
Earlier this week, Mayor Landrieu met with members of the local NAACP to hear their concerns. He asked the group to partner with him in the City’s NOLA FOR LIFE plan to reduce murder in New Orleans.
In addition to the Mayor, the senior leadership of the New Orleans Police Department will attend the community meeting.
