The Kenner Police Department’s mission is to provide our community with the most effective and professional law enforcement and public safety services. We recognize and take pride in our continuous contribution to the quality of life in our community. We will meet the challenge of fulfilling our mission by basing our actions on these guiding principles:
Crime Prevention, Law Enforcement, & Public Safety
We strive to prevent criminal activity by engaging in innovative policing methods.
We preserve the peace and suppress crime by investigating suspected criminal activity. We arrest and incarcerate persons who commit criminal acts.
We protect life and property by effectively responding to all disasters and emergencies.
We promote the efficient flow of traffic, investigate accidents and encourage safe driving habits.
We respond in a timely manner to all service requests.
We educate our citizens about crime prevention.
We educate our youth on the dangers of substance abuse and delinquency.
We work to earn the respect of all the people we serve. We perform our duties with courtesy, fairness, efficiency, professionalism and respect for diversity.
We promote an open-door policy concerning all matters of public interest.
We recognize and value the members of our community as partners in a unified effort to prevent and reduce crime.
Ethics & Professional Standards
We are committed to uphold our position of trust by maintaining the highest ethical standards.
We value the spirit of teamwork, commitment to duty and training.
We pledge to make maximum effective use of the resources and personnel and demonstrate fiscal responsibility.
As 2022 bids us farewell and we march into 2023, I thought I would take this opportunity to give you an end of the year report on your Kenner Police Department. Working with the Mayor and Council, we were able to enhance technology and equipment by replacing aging computers in all units and administrative offices, procure new portable radios, upgrade our Tasers, and brought on body worn cameras for all Kenner officers. Our fleet of vehicles have been well maintained, but, unfortunately have reached the end of the road. Over 70% of our fleet has over 100,000 miles. We have put together a plan to add new vehicles to our fleet as we move forward. Crime cameras are a valuable tool in law enforcement and KPD has increased our inventory. We have increased our current number of cameras by adding 55 more throughout the City. These new cameras are more technologically advanced and have been used to solve property crimes across the City of Kenner. With these cameras, we are part of a network of crime cameras across the region and linked with over 50 other agencies.
BUT, our most valuable assets are the men and women that serve our residents. All of our divisions work together toward making the City of Kenner the safest city in Louisiana! In order to recruit and retain employees we increased pay for incoming officers, as well as all employees. We also launched an aggressive recruitment campaign. Kenner is a safe city, however working together we can make it even safer. First, lock your vehicle doors and certainly NEVER leave a firearm in the vehicle. Over 90% of the vehicle burglaries in the City have been through unlocked doors. Home surveillance videos have shown over and over again burglars going from parked car to parked car pulling door handles until they eventually find a vehicle unlocked. Please continue locking your vehicle’s doors. Second, if you see something, say something! See or hear anything suspicious or just out of the ordinary? Call 9-1-1. KPD response time for emergency 9-1-1 calls are under 3 minutes. Our communications division and patrol division would rather you call so they can prevent a crime, or jump a crime in progress rather than have you or your neighbors victimized. If you don’t believe me, please follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter @Kennerpolice and keep up with the great work the men and women of KPD do- and they do it FOR YOU!!!!!
