NEW ORLEANS - 07-15-2021

Following is a statement from Sheriff Marlin N. Gusman regarding today's vote by the New Orleans City Council on the proposed Special Needs Facility at OJC:

"It is disappointing to see self-proclaimed criminal justice reform groups advocate against improving conditions for detainees in crisis, as required by law.

"Some of those trying to make this a political issue—instead of human issue—weren't here when the State of Louisiana purposely chose not to include an adequate, secure mental health unit for the appropriate care of these types of inmates at University Medical Center which replaced Charity Hospital.

"Moreover, this issue has already been litigated and we are required by the federal court to build a mental health and medical facility that meets constitutional standards and best practices. In addition, this facility is FEMA funded.

"This isn't a game. This is a question of whether we, as a community, want a safe, humane place for those in crisis who pose a risk to themselves and those around them."



NEW ORLEANS - 07-09-2021

A significant number of arrestees have substance abuse and drug addictions. Inmates who participate in Narcotics Anonymous sessions held at the Orleans Justice Center have been invited to a banquet -- virtually.

At 8 p.m. on Saturday, July 10, 2021, these inmates will join via Zoom a banquet hosted by the New Orleans Area Chapter of Narcotics Anonymous (NA) which is holding its annual convention at the Hilton New Orleans Riverside Hotel. The convention ends Sunday, July 11.

During the hour-long Zoom, an inmate in the NA group at OJC will read a short passage that highlights the challenges associated with addiction. As part of the occasion, the NA inmates will be served a special meal of pizza and soft drinks.

Sheriff Marlin Gusman thanks the New Orleans Area Chapter of Narcotics Anonymous for including the Orleans Justice Center in NA's annual convention and Gregory W. Carroll, OPSO director of programs, with additional support from case managers and mental health professionals at OJC for organizing our participation.
