The path to a safer city is clear. It requires a modern police force, an effective justice system and a community that stands behind the brave men and women who form the frontlines against crime.

At NOPJF we channel private support into programs that yield tangible results: More officers. Better technology. Effective community partnerships. Less crime.

“The New Orleans Police & Justice Foundation is the only nonprofit organization exclusively dedicating its support to the New Orleans Police Department.

The NOPJF provides the equipment, training and technology my officers  need to fight crime and make New Orleans a safer place to live, work and visit.”

– Superintendent Michael Harrison
