Earlier this year Mayor Mitch Landrieu announced a $40 million investment in public safety. That money’s being spent on things like surveillance cameras, brighter LED fixtures in the French Quarter, and 300 squad cars for the NOPD.
This got the crew of The Listening Post thinking about how effective those investments are and whether people feel safe in their city. We asked:
1. How safe are you feeling as you move around New Orleans these days? Where do you feel safe in the city? What places do you try to avoid or tell others to avoid?
2. Tell us about a time you felt unsafe in New Orleans. What’d you do about it?
3. When you see the police, do you feel more or less safe?
The Listening Post project seeks to establish a two-way conversation with the citizens of New Orleans. Participants can both contribute thoughts and commentary about important issues in their neighborhoods, and also receive news and information important to local communities. Join the conversation by calling or texting "Hello" to (504) 303-4348.
