    The Office of the New Orleans Inspector General (OIG) found that the presence of a Security District was a significant predictor of lower property crime rates, but not a significant predictor of reduction in violent crime or murder rates. The OIG found that the public’s feeling of safety increased and fear decreased.

    What are Security and Improvement Districts and where are they located?

    Have you ever wondered about those extra patrols you see in some neighborhoods?  They're part of what's known as Security and Improvement Districts (SIDs).  These districts have a clear mission: to enhance safety within their boundaries and boost residents' peace of mind.

    Security Districts aren't a recent phenomenon.  Security Districts began forming in New Orleans in 1997, and by August 2012 there were 25 active districts.  As of now there are 43, each working towards making neighborhoods safer places to live.
