NOLA, We Have a Problem


The solution starts with us

About NOLA FOR LIFE


Developed in May 2012, NOLA FOR LIFE is Mayor Mitch Landrieu’s comprehensive murder reduction strategy to tackle the city’s historically-high murder rate.

Recognizing that law enforcement alone cannot solve the murder problem, NOLA FOR LIFE takes a holistic approach to get to the root of the problem, and implements initiatives under five pillars:

1) Stop the Shooting
2) Invest in Prevention
3) Promote Jobs and Opportunity
4) Improve the NOPD
5) Get Involved and Rebuild Neighborhoods

NOLA FOR LIFE was fueled by the Mayor’s Innovation Delivery Team in partnership with public safety and public health experts and local service providers.
