NEW ORLEANS - New Orleans police efforts to improve public perception appear to be paying off.

A recent survey finds more residents have confidence in the department's ability to address violent crime and satisfaction with officers' honesty, integrity and professionalism.

The findings came from the New Orleans Crime Coalition's survey conducted from Aug. 26-28 and released this month.

The commission asked 600 New Orleans citizens - 75 in each of the eight police districts - how they ranked professionalism, behavior and enforcement efforts.

Police Superintendent Ronal Serpas attributed the improvements to how officers have engaged with communities by using a procedural tactic he called "selling the stock."
