The smell of king cake is in the air and the excitement of all that Mardi Gras brings has finally arrived. While most of us spending Mardi Gras season on the parade routes eating, drinking, and celebrating with our family and friend, NOPD officers work hard to keep the public safe. Many officers work up to twelve hour shifts during Mardi Gras and have little to eat and drink.
The New Orleans Police and Justice Foundation has created a great way for us all to give back to the "Krewe in Blue" with their annual Adopt-A-Cop during Mardi Gras. The donations provide NOPD officers and other visiting officers with hot meals, snacks and beverages to keep them going during the long days and nights of Mardi Gras.
With a small donation of $10, we can help ensure each cop remains fueled up and ready to second line in the streets. Please visit the link below to adopt-a-cop by donating any amount.
