Homicide Cold Case Unit

The NOPD Homicide Cold Case Unit reviews cases based on numerous different factors and explores how new technology and resources, (i.e. DNA, fingerprint and informational databases, etc.) might impact a renewed investigation. If the inquiry identifies new suspects, or strengthens the case against known subjects, the case is reopened. The Cold Case Squad has also aided other Departmental entities with high-profile cases on an as needed basis, and, upon request, lends its expertise to other law enforcement agencies. 

Citizen Assistance

The Cold Case Squad can always use the help of ordinary citizens. There are currently about 2000 cold cases that remain unsolved, and you may have knowledge about one of these crimes that can help us solve the case.

If anyone has any information please contact the New Orleans Police Department’s Cold Case Homicide Section at (504) 658-5300.
