OPSO, JOHN CURTIS SCHOOL PARTNER TO HELP LAURA EVACUEES WHO MAY BE IMPACTED BY DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

NEW ORLEANS - 10-02-2020

Victims Assistance Fair Saturday at Springhill Suites Hotel

As part of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, OPSO's Crime Victims Assistance Program, in partnership with John Curtis Christian School and others, is hosting a victims assistance fair for Hurricane Laura evacuees who may have experienced domestic violence while staying in Orleans Parish.

"Since the start of the pandemic, there has been an increase in the number of domestic violence cases across the country," said Capt. Stephanie Minto, lead investigator for OPSO's Crime Victims Assistance Program. "Sadly, some Hurricane Laura evacuees have experienced domestic violence anew, while in New Orleans attempting to recover from the devastating storm. We're reaching out to our neighbors from the Lake Charles area to provide as much assistance as we can."

The Victims Assistance Fair takes place from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 3, at the Springhill Suites Hotel, 301 St. Joseph St.

OPSO Crime Victims Assistance Program will set up an information table at the hotel to help Laura evacuees impacted by domestic violence determine if they are eligible for cash assistance or a referral to the Family Justice Center, or both.

The John Curtis School's girls track team is also supporting the victims assistance fair with clothing items, water and toiletries. Additional support is provided by A1 Absolute Best Care, LLC and Branch Man Construction, LLC.


 

ORLEANS PARISH SHERIFF’S OFFICE UPDATE REGARDING COVID-19 TESTING AND PRECAUTIONS

NEW ORLEANS - 09-18-2020

Following is a joint statement from Sheriff Marlin Gusman and Compliance Director Darnley R. Hodge regarding ongoing health monitoring of inmates and OPSO staff and contractors, as well as established precautions at the Orleans Justice Center (OJC) related COVID-19 prevention and treatment:

TODAY'S UPDATE:

"Regarding the status of COVID-19 within our facility, there are 76 positive cases of COVID-19 out of the 867 current inmates in OPSO custody. In addition, 21 OPSO staff members are currently positive for COVID-19 as well as two employees of OPSO's contracted medical provider, Wellpath.

While we were able to reduce this number significantly back in June as we entered phase 2 of mass testing, we have seen a gradual rise in the number of cases over time and are working diligently to contain and eliminate the virus.

All of the inmates are asymptomatic and none are in the hospital.

Throughout the pandemic and currently, we have conducted an aggressive screening and testing process in partnership with Ochsner Health System, followed a strict protocol to segregate positive and potentially positive cases from other inmates, educated inmates and staff on prevention methods and followed a detailed treatment plan.

As our city and state progress into advanced phases of reopening, we are implementing additional protocol for our staff and inmates to re-enforce the need for each and every member of our OPSO community to do their part in preventing the spread of COVID-19.

We will provide periodic updates on the status of COVID-19 within our facility."
