Requesting the footage of Crime Stopper camera on Basin Street and Canal Street (Saenger Theatre). This happened on May 14, 2019 around the of 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm. I already spoke with Project NOLA about the camera and they referred me to your site.
Crime Camera footage is not archived unless requested by NOPD or other public safety agency. Since there is no item number related to your request, you may report the incident to the police who will then provide you with an item number. NOPD will review the footage to determine whether it contains relevant evidence and archive only relevant portion(s) of the footage. Thereafter, you may request the archived footage via public records request. In the alternative, if you do not have an NOPD item number, you may obtain footage by serving a subpoena upon the City to preserve evidence. Please note that footage is only retained for 30 days. Additional information regarding crime cameras can be found here: https://nola.gov/homeland-security/real-time-crime-center/
On behalf of the custodial department(s), our office has responded to your request and considers this request closed.
