We learned last night that NOPD caught 3 suspects in the 7th street robbery on Monday night.. They also have good leads for the one in the 3300 block of Constance. Officers reminded people to avoid walking home alone after dark if possible.
As part of an increase in police patrol due to recent incidents, the NOPD is focusing on juveniles violating the city curfew. Note that the summer curfew hours are 8 PM to 6 AM Sun-Thurs and 11 PM to 6 AM Fri-Sat. Please make sure your friends, family and neighbors with kids 17 and younger are aware of the hours. Here is a link with more information: http://www.nola.gov/en/sitecore/content/Root/GOVERNMENT/NOPD/Juvenile-Division.aspx
We have also believe that the city has been focusing on illegal vehicles parked in the Channel so please check any vehicles you have parked on public streets.
Finally, if you are interesting in meeting with others about starting a neighborhood watch group in the Channel please email me and we will set up a meeting to discuss further.
