Algiers residents concerned about crime in their neighborhoods can attend a crime forum and town hall meeting tonight (Thursday, June 30) from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Delgado Community College’s Westbank Campus (2600 Gen. Meyer Ave., Building 1).
The meeting is sponsored by City Councilwoman Kristin Giselson Palmer, the Algiers Neighborhood Presidents Council, the Algiers Economic Development Foundation and Delgado. New Orleans Police Chief Ronal Serpas, Crime Czar James Carter, independent police monitor Susan Hutson and area senators and representatives will attend the meeting.
In an email, organizers said the meeting was scheduled to address an “alarming increase in crime in the Algiers area over the past six months since Capt. Heather Kouts assumed command of the NOPD 4th District.”
