How It Works
Orleans Levee District Police (OLD) and NOPD patrol are your first lines of defense.
OLD works for LVCPD. Their only job is to be a deterrent to crime and to add a layer of safety to our neighborhood. CALL them to escort you home at night, CALL them to let them know if you will be out of town and they will patrol around your home more often.
