Chief of Police
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

Avoid Distractions While Driving
Distraction is anything that diverts the driver’s attention from the primary tasks of navigating the vehicle and responding to critical events. To put it another way, a distraction is anything that takes your eyes off the road (visual distraction), your mind off the road (cognitive distraction) or your hands off the wheel (manual distraction). So, when you think about tasks that can be a driving distraction, you can see that they often fit into more than one category – eating is visual and manual, whereas using a navigation system is all three.
There are two basic components of the distraction safety problem – the attentional demands of the distracting task and the frequency with which drivers choose to multitask. Task demands relate to the amount of resources (visual, cognitive, manual) required to perform the task. The other issue is exposure, which is how often drivers engage in the task. Putting those two concepts together, even an easy task can be a bigger safety problem if the person does the task 50% of their driving time. In 2019 alone, 3,142 people were killed in motor vehicle crashes involving distracted drivers.
Please review the following common dangers of driving. Make sure you go over this information with your teenage drivers as these simple tips keep your family safe on the road.
