City Council presses NOPD after New Orleans restaurant robberies


Members of the New Orleans City Council have received several complaints and calls to action to address robberies at two Uptown restaurants and one barroom. The Council pulled together a special Criminal Justice Committee meeting with New Orleans Police Department's (NOPD) top brass to ask why these crimes are happening, and what other resources NOPD needs.

District A City Councilmember Susan Guidry said the robberies and other recent violent crimes are*"highly disturbing and have everyone on edge" and there's a sense that "violence is around every corner."

"The rash of robberies in high-profile establishments is not why we?re here today," said*Council President Jason Williams Jason Williams.*"The issue is they were brazen, they were planned, and the risk of harm to others is so high."
