The month of May is upon us and that means warm weather, festival season and the end of the school year. I am proud to announce the Kenner Police Department has begun yet another training academy. We are thrilled to welcome 16 new recruits working toward becoming the best in blue. These exceptional men and women will undergo extensive and strenuous training over the next several months as they become members of the KPD! This is the fifth academy that has been held since I took office in July 2022. I and the entire KPD are already so proud of this recruit class and know they will go above and beyond in making this community safe.

National Police Week is held annually during the month of May. This week is near and dear to me and recognizes law enforcement officer’s contributions throughout the nation. Each day, my officers put on their uniform unaware what the day will hold. This is a time to honor the sacrifices and commitment our police officers make each day. 

The Law Enforcement Torch Run is also held in May. This annual event brings together law enforcement and Special Olympic athletes to raise awareness and funds for the Special Olympics. I and our officers are honored to participate in this incredible event on May 30. 

As we prepare for summer break, I want to emphasize the importance of keeping our children safe while they are away from school. With longer days and more free time, it’s crucial that we take proactive steps to ensure their well-being. I urge you to have an open conversation with your children about safety. Stress the importance of being aware of their surroundings, sticking together with friends and always alerting you to where they are. Encourage them to participate in organized activities such as sports leagues, art programs or community service projects. The City of Kenner offers many camps and activities. Information can be found here. These activities not only provide enjoyment but offer a structured and supervised environment for our kids to thrive. 

I am committed to strengthening our partnership with this community and exploring new ways to collaborate on initiatives that benefit us all. Your input and support are invaluable. I encourage you to share your ideas and concerns with me. Download our app by searching ‘Kenner Police Department’ in your app store and be sure to follow us on social media. Never hesitate to reach out to me at 504-712-2212 or by emailing me at [email protected]
