Arnaud's To Make Cute And Cuddly Donation To NOPD, January 7

NEW ORLEANS – NOPD Superintendent Michael Harrison, along with Deputy Chiefs and Commanders, will accept a donation of hundreds of teddy bears as a result of the NOPD’s second annual Teddy Bear Program, initiated by Arnaud’s Restaurant and in partnership with the New Orleans Police & Justice Foundation (NOPJF), on Thursday, January 7, 2016, at NOPD Headquarters, 715 South Broad St., in the Large Conference Room, at 10:00 a.m.

         The teddy bears will be placed in NOPD vehicles for officers to distribute to children they encounter on duty that have been traumatized due to tragedy or victimization, along with distraught family members.

         NOPJF is a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting the New Orleans Police Department by promoting excellence in policing, efficiency in criminal justice and positive community engagement in New Orleans. Founded in 1995, NOPJF reps said they played a decisive role in launching the reforms and policy innovations that helped New Orleans lead the nation in crime reduction in the late 1990’s.

         Today, NOPJF works on behalf of the New Orleans Police Department along with community groups, business leaders, criminal justice agencies and City officials to make New Orleans a safer place in which to live, work and visit. NOPJF is seeking supporters, like Arnaud’s, to join their partnership for a safer city.
