Fired NOPD officers hired by other agencies

This article reports numerous cases of officers fired by New Orleans being hired by other law enforcement agencies. Records indicate that over the last 10 years NOPD “has fired or otherwise pushed out at least 248 officers … 53 have been hired by other police departments.” Louisiana has a state-level process to remove an officer’s certification, but it has to be initiated at the local level. In the last decade, no officers have been decertified for misconduct.
