New Orleans Police Department officers appeared in new navy blue uniform shirts this week. The police officers had historically worn light blue uniform shirts but so many dry cleaners were looted during the Katrina aftermath that the NOPD decided to change shirt colors. Police Superintendent Warren Riley:
"The reason for this change is in the aftermath of Katrina, a number of cleaners were looted. Hundreds of uniforms were stolen. We are very concerned about citizens and in the future people impersonating the police."
In the future, if you see persons looting empty shoe boxes from Wal-Mart wearing New Orleans Police Department uniforms that look like this, they are imposters!
In the future, if you see New Orleans Police Department crime scene photographers in uniforms that look like this, they are imposters!
In the future, if you are a retired New Orleans school teacher who steps out for a pack of cigarettes and finds himself getting the crap beaten out of him by persons wearing uniforms that look like this, you can rest assured that you are getting your ass needlessly kicked by genuine New Orleans Police Department representatives!
