NOPD Sex Crimes Unit shows a “remarkable turnaround” according to Inspector General

The New Orleans Office of Inspector General (OIG) conducted a performance audit of the New Orleans Police Department’s (NOPD) documenting and reporting of rapes to the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) Uniform Crime Reporting Program (UCR Program) for the period of October 1, 2015 to December 31, 2015. The OIG conducted this audit as a result of two reports issued in 2014 that showed serious systemic problems with NOPD’s documenting and reporting of rapes.
