29th Annual COPS 2 Mardi Gras Meals

One of the ways we try to personalize our thanks to the police officers of the 2nd District is to serve them meals at various times during Mardi Gras. We work with businesses in the community who donate items for the meals and we set up a nice venue at the Station for the officers to gather before they go out to the parade route for the long Mardi Gras hours. 2013 marks the 28th consecutive year that COPS 2 has coordinated this effort. Feeding the officers of the Second District is one of the oldest traditions of COPS 2


New Scooter for "The 2nd"

COPS 2 recently helped the 2nd District purchase a new scooter, making a total of five scooters provided to the district since 2006. The 2nd District officers use the scooters to allow them quick and easy access in high-traffic areas to address crime, provide greater visibility and promote positive public relations. The scooters are used mainly in the areas of Magazine, Oak and Tchopitoulas Streets.



Detectives Get New Laptops
COPS 2 donated funds for laptops for the 2nd District Detectives Unit. Each of our 2nd District Detectives now has a "state of the art" laptop which enhances their ability to connect quickly to the NOPD main computer and thus do their investigative work more efficiently. The portability is an important aspect of their investigative and report-writing work.

Tommy Parker Awards

Tommy Parker was an exceptional member of COPS 2 who served for many years on the Board and is remembered for his dedication and hard work to helping police officers in the 2nd District. Upon his death, The Azby Fund, and friends of Tommy Parker established a memorial fund for "Tommy Parker Awards" in order to recognize the outstanding work of police officers in the 2nd District. The Tommy Parker Awards are presented each quarter to the 2nd District's Best Patrol Officer, Best DIU (Detective Investigative Unit) Officer, and Best Reserve or Rank Officer.

At the end of the year, The Tommy Parker Best of the Best is awarded to the officer who stands out among the best of the quarterly award recipients in each category. The award recipients are determined by careful evaluation of the supervisors and Commander of the 2nd District with input from COPS 2.
