The executive director of the French Quarter Festival says NOPD officers will work details during the festival.

The Police Association of New Orleans says changes to the NOPD’s detail policy could be financially catastrophic for officers.  The group could decide to stop working details for a couple of days to protest the changes.

Tuesday night, PANO could vote to steer clear of working details during the French Quarter Festival.  But French Quarter Festival Executive Director Marci Schramm said Monday evening that she’d been in contact with top NOPD officers who told her the details will be provided.

PANO stresses that any decision would involve only details and not regularly schedules shifts.
