It’s Not Enough Is Back

After a recent surge in crime and a lack of acknowledgement from the Tulane administration, it is time for the campaign to return.

Several times a week for the past month now, I have been receiving crime reports of armed robberies, home invasions and carjackings. This most recent crime occurring at 1.45 in the afternoon on one of the busiest intersections of Broadway and St. Charles confirms that there is a serious problem. I still have yet to receive an email from Tulane regarding it, leaving me to find out via Uptown Messenger.

This brings to mind many fond memories of sitting in my kitchen with friends, listening to music, talking, enjoying ourselves, with the front door open. Of course we should lock our doors and set the alarm at night, but who thinks to lock the door in the middle of the afternoon when you’re surrounded by friends?

I want to stay in my beautiful city of New Orleans but I don’t want to live in a violent environment like this.

Everyone needs to do their part in this by calling the administration, the police department, the mayor and telling them that whatever they are doing is not enough. New Orleans is an amazing city that should not be brought down by rampant, violent crime.

We urge you to call:

Scott Cowen: 504.865.5201
Mayor Landrieu: 504.658.4000
Police Commissioner James Carter: 504.658.4049

About It's Not Enough

We are Tulane students who appreciate the effort TUPD gives to protect us, but believe that it is inadequate. Given the amount of assaults, robberies, burglaries and other types of crime that surrounds the Tulane Campus, we need more from TUPD. Simply put, it's not enough.

    I like your website. As a Tulane parent, I am also concerned about crimein the area. I tried to sign your on-line petition, but it was closed or expired. There was an incident Sunday morning that did not involve my daughter, but it hit a little too close. I have contacted Scott Cowan as well as the Tulane police. I think there needs to be more uniformed officers in the areas around Brodway where students live. According to police, there is a safety comitteee comprised of administration and students that meets often. I hope you are part of that committee. If lots of folks get involved, maybe they can make a difference.
