Everyone knows that our famously friendly officers make sure the party happens safely every Carnival. What you might not know is that with 8-12 hour shifts along with long lines at restaurants—and often without a break at all—our officers run low on the fuel they need to Mardi Gras wobble, second line, and keep our citizens and visitors from crossing lines so the krewes can keep rolling all season. Donating as little as $10 to our Krewe in Blue can ensure that they get something to eat and drink and laissez bon temps rouler. To “Adopt-A-Cop,” visit nopjf.org/adopt-a-cop.
