September Stats

The men and women of the Kenner Police Department have done an excellent job in keeping Kenner safe. Remember, we need your help, when you arrive at your residence, lock your car doors and NEVER leave weapons in your car. Additionally, if you see anything suspicious or out of the ordinary, please call 9-1-1. We have posted several success stories on our Face Book page of the community and KPD working together to keep Kenner safe. So far in October 9-1-1 calls have taken guns and drugs off of our streets. There is no doubt your calls have prevented a crime from occurring either in Kenner or our surrounding area. Please jump onto Face Book and check out our page KennerPolice.

For the month of September Kenner had 2 business burglaries and 18 reported vehicle burglaries. Of those 18, 16 of those vehicles were left unlocked or showed no signs of forced entry. A total of 3 firearms were stolen, all from unlocked vehicles.  We had 11 residential burglaries, 2 were vacant homes, one was an enclosed patio and another one was domestic in nature. We had a business robbed at gun point in the 3000 block of Loyola, a suspect was swiftly arrested in that case and linked to 2 other robberies in Jefferson Parish. Our Narcotics Division has been very proactive and busy. They have several open and continuing investigations. Overall there have been over 24 narcotics related arrests taking drugs and guns off the streets. We have seized everything from large quantities of marijuana, to crack cocaine, powder cocaine, meth, MDMA,  illegally obtained prescription drugs, and yes even mushrooms (again). Five of these subjects were also arrested for being in possession of a firearm. Since they were also in possession of a CDS, the penalties are enhanced.

KPD receives complaints regarding speeding and stop sign violations for just about every subdivision and main street in the City. We do respond to those complaints and will continue to do so. In the month of September, our patrol and traffic division handled approximately 260 crashes and issued 467 tickets.

These statistics do not include the daily activity of our officers with their “routine” activity and arrests. In October the KPD has put extra manpower in the streets to prevent vehicle burglaries across the City. This group will be a patrolling the city looking for suspicious activity but would also love your help by hearing from you if you see any suspicious activity or notice anything on your home video surveillance or doorbell cameras.

Academy Graduation

On October 21, 2022 the Kenner Police Department held the graduation ceremony for our Academy class #20. The ceremony was held at Church of the King. Eleven officers graduated after a rigorous 4 months of training. These recruits proved their proficiency in firearms, self-defense tactics, legal aspects, accident investigation, constitutional law, narcotics investigations, de-escalation tactics, report writing, and tactical driving among other things. Among those addressing the graduates and their families were Chief Keith Conley, Mayor Michael Glaser and U.S. Congressman Steve Scalise. Congratulations to these officers and thank you for your dedication to your community.

National Night Out Success

The National Night Out Against Crime Kickoff event at the Pontchartrain Center was a huge success. Thank you to all that came out and enjoyed the free food, drink, music and presentations by the more than 35 agencies that participated. We have already met to begin planning next year’s event.
