WATCH: NOPD Third District Receives Donation of Police Bicycles from Local Organizations

Bikes

NEW ORLEANS – The NOPD’s Third District has a couple of new sets of wheels for use in patrolling local neighborhoods.

On April 24, the NOPD Third District received two new fully equipped police bicycles, generously donated by Fair Grounds Race Course and Slots and the Desaix Area Neighborhood Association.

These new bicycles will be used by certified NOPD bicycle officers in patrolling local neighborhoods and at large-scale events in the Third District, such as the upcoming New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival.

Katrina 10 Project

This August, we will mark 10 years since Hurricane Katrina, and here is the bottom line—we have been through more than most, but we survived it because we came together. And while we still have work left to do, ours is a story of strength and resilience, and it’s a story we must share.

To tell this story as only we can, we launched Katrina 10 to commemorate the lives lost, to honor those who helped us survive, to acknowledge the work that has been done, and to ensure that we continue to build on our progress in the future.

DESAIX AREA NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION will participate in the Katrina 10 Year Anniversary Citywide Day of Service on August 29, 2015.  We are asking for 50 volunteers to participate in DANA’s Drain Cleaning Project.  We will clean out drain grates for the entire DeSaix Area, which in turn will help prevent street flooding.

TIME:  8:30 AM – 12:30 PM

LOCATION:  We will meet at Langston Hughes Academy where we will have a short orientation and streets will be assigned to volunteers.

LUNCH WILL BE PROVIDED!
