KPD Community Police Corps

The objective of the Community Police Corps is to provide the Kenner Police Department and its members support to help them accomplish their duty, and to provide effective and efficient public safety services to our community.  While “on duty,” volunteers operate under the direction of the Bureau, Division, Unit, or Section supervisor in which they are performing their volunteer assignments. 

Volunteers are given the use of a vehicle, which is used to observe areas such as schools and business concentrations.  They look for suspicious activity and report it by radio to the Communications Section.  They also report handicap violations, roadway obstructions, and non-working traffic lights, and are also tasked to direct traffic when needed.  Members may also volunteer in an administrative capacity.   

Members of the Community Police Corps do not write tickets and do not provide enforcement.  They do not carry weapons.   

To be eligible for the program, volunteers must successfully pass a background check, must be CPR certified, and must also be a graduate of the Citizen Police Academy, where they are introduced to police procedures and administrative functions.  They are also required to complete 20 hours of additional training before they are accepted into the program.  The additional training covers much of the same material police officers study after they are hired.

For information on the program or to receive an application, please contact the Community Relations Division at (504) 712-2294 or at nguggenheim@kennerpd.com.
