NEW ORLEANS — Mayor LaToya Cantrell today provided an update on the International Association of Chiefs of Police’s (IACP) executive search for the next New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) Superintendent:
“After identifying IACP to lead our executive search for the next NOPD Superintendent, I am proud to take this next step alongside Chief Administrative Officer Gilbert Montaño in announcing that the application process has closed, and as of June 24, we have 33 applicants ready to begin the next step in hopes of becoming the permanent leader of the NOPD,” said Mayor LaToya Cantrell.
“Thank you to IACP for continuing to lend a helping hand towards making an informed decision that is best for the residents and visitors of this great city.
