A Few Recommendations About Crime

Filed under: Civic Blogging,Crime,New Orleans — Tags: , , — Morwen Madrigal @ 7:44 pm

I will be posting odd bits and pieces concerning crime here in NOLA. Some will be stats, others will be protective measures. I have two for today:

1) NOLA Dishu has some updated crime maps that will help with focusing on what is going down where.

2) Taser International announced a smaller personal Taser to be released  in April. Fits in a purse or a pocket, is less powerful than the cop version, and it will stop an assailant for about 30 seconds. (enough time for me to break out a can of whoop-ass on him.) Price should be $300 plus and activation/registration fee.

BTW- If you are carrying a cell that is not a 504 number, you may not be able to use it to call 911 in the city. Check with your service provider. (Mine’s a Cali number, but that’s in case we have to evacuate and the local towers go down.)
