It only took 6 years to build ...New Orleans police open new station in Hurricane Katrina-devastated 7th District

City officials unveiled a new 7th District police station in eastern New Orleans on Tuesday, along with a plan to create citizen advisory boards that will offer guidance to each of the city's eight police commanders. Officers in the 7th District have been working out of temporary quarters since Hurricane Katrina swamped the Dwyer Road station more than six years ago. First, they operated out of FEMA trailers. Then, in 2007, employees moved to office space on Lake Forest Boulevard donated by former Pizza Hut franchise owner Larry Lundy.


Officer Timothy Mire waits to raise the flag as New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu and other local officials dedicate the NOPD 7th District station on Tuesday.
The new $6.2 million building is twice as large as the structure it replaced and is elevated to avoid future flooding. It is also designed to withstand 200 mph winds. Commander Michael Harrison, who was appointed last week by NOPD Superintendent Ronal Serpas to lead the 7th District, called the station "a place (officers) can be proud to call home."
During the ceremony, Mayor Mitch Landrieu also unveiled a new program to create eight community advisory boards that will work with department brass on reducing crime, addressing quality-of-life issues, and solving problems related to biased policing.
Landrieu said the boards, which were part of a plan Serpas unveiled in August 2010, are a small component of the comprehensive federal consent decree being negotiated by city officials and the U.S. Department of Justice. The Justice Department's community relations service will train board members.
