State troopers to remain in New Orleans
NEW ORLEANS - Louisiana State Police will continue to patrol the streets of New Orleans.
Superintendent Col. Mike Edmonson and interim New Orleans police Superintendent Michael Harrison say the troopers deployed throughout the city to assist with law enforcement will remain until November.
Edmonson originally said the officers would leave the city on Sept. 1.
Edmonson deployed 50 state troopers and public safety officers to help with law enforcement in New Orleans following a June 29 shooting in the French Quarter that left one person dead and nine injured. He says the extension came at the request of the police department and the City of New Orleans.
