The Strategy

Launched in May 2012, NOLA FOR LIFE is Mayor Landrieu’s cutting edge murder reduction strategy for the City of New Orleans. It’s smart, holistic and it hits the streets.

Mayor's Innovation Delivery Team

In July 2011, Bloomberg Philanthropies announced a $24 million initiative to fund Innovation Delivery Teams (I-team) that help mayors effectively design and implement solutions to pressing challenges in their cities. New Orleans was one of five cities to receive a multi-year grant. As a pioneer "I-team" city, we're seeing major results in our two priority areas: customer service and murder reduction.

Using the i-team playbook, Mayor Landrieu's Innovation Team created and introduced a comprehensive strategy for reducing murders in New Orleans in 2012. In 2013, there were 156 murders, representing a 19% drop from the year before. This was the lowest annual total since 1985, and the lowest rate the city has seen since 1999. Today the team is managing a disciplined delivery process to continuously and reliably monitor progress to stated targets.
