Throughout Carnival season, NOPD officers are on duty and working with a majority putting in 12-hour shifts in a police district or a minimum of 8-hour shifts along the parade route. Adopt-A-Cop Mardi Gras Support provides our Krewe in Blue with much needed hot meals, healthy snacks, and beverages to enjoy during the long days and nights of Mardi Gras. There would be no Purple, Green and Gold without the Blue!
