New Chief Plans to Cleanup NOPD, City Crime

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The man charged with cleaning up both the New
Orleans Police Department and the city's violent crime has a plan
and a warning for his officers - "if you lie, you die."
In the wake an investigation that left 18 current or former
officers facing federal charges, Superintendent Ronal Serpas said
Monday that lying, either verbally or in police reports will result
in immediate firing.
Serpas marked hiFirefighters from job by making public a
65-point plan for rebuilding a department that has been hit hard by
scandal.
It includes more training for officers, more accountability and
higher standards.
