Mayor Cantrell Urges Respect for Law Enforcement in Response to Recent Public Safety Threats

NEW ORLEANS — Mayor LaToya Cantrell today issued the following statement urging respect for law enforcement in response to recent public safety threats:

“The reckless criminal behavior that continues to occur on our streets poses a threat to public safety and is completely unacceptable,” said Mayor Cantrell. “These brazen actions have accelerated to a complete disregard and blatant disrespect for law enforcement. This ends now! The dedicated women and men of the New Orleans Police Department have pledged their lives to protecting and keeping the public safe. We must show them the gratitude and respect they’ve earned. My administration stands with the New Orleans Police Department as they seek to increase criminal penalties associated with this type of behavior, and as they relentlessly pursue all perpetrators who place the public at risk.”
