NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) – For the first time since Hurricane Katrina, the NOPD’s Fifth District is calling 3900 North Claiborne “home”.

The department announced that Tuesday officers would begin transitioning from a temporary facility on Burgundy back to the district’s original location, now with a new building.  The storm destroyed the original building on North Claiborne.

Police say the Burgundy location will continue to be staffed until the transition is complete.
