Collaboration between the Kenner Police Department and the community is essential in ensuring the safety and well-being of our residents. Together, we can address concerns, implement effective crime prevention strategies and build trust and mutual respect among all members of our community.

The Kenner Police Department is beefing up our traffic division. As we continue to grow our patrol division, we will also increase our traffic enforcement division. We have recently revamped and upgraded our vehicle speed detection devices. Our officers average 450 citations a month. In March alone, officers handled 227 accidents and issued 618 traffic citations. I understand traffic is a top concern, and my officers are doing their very best to stay on top of this. 

On an exciting note, we are thrilled to begin a new training academy later this month. This will be the 5th training academy since I took office in July 2022. I am thrilled to add to our KPD family only enhancing our ability to serve this community.

April is Autism Awareness Month. It’s a time for not only awareness, but for understanding and acceptance. The KPD has recently launched a new program aimed at creating just that. Our “Safe ‘N’ Sound” Program provides crucial support to families and guardians of individuals with mental or physical exceptionalities. This program allows them to register a loved one who has conditions such as Autism, Down Syndrome, Alzheimer’s, etc. This registration equips our officers with essential information enabling them to quickly reunite individuals with their families in the event they wander away from home or school. Our officers are able to facilitate a seamless reunification minimizing stress or anxiety during a potentially distressing situation. Sign up for the “Safe ‘N’ Sound” Program here

April is also Child Abuse Prevention Month. The KPD is honored to team up with the Children’s Advocacy Center to bring awareness to this critical issue. Each year, we place ‘pinwheels for prevention’ in the front of the Kenner Police Department to show support for this cause. Additionally, in honor of Child Abuse Prevention Month, the Jefferson Children’s Advocacy Center, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides direct services to child abuse survivors, has scheduled its 11th annual “Step Up For Children” gala on Friday, April 26 from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. This festive evening will include live entertainment, delicious food and drinks and an auction. Contact CAC Director Erika Dupepe at 504-364-3857 for more information. Tickets can be purchased at jeffersoncac.com
