MCSD Mission & Structural Integrity

The community initiative of Mid-City Security District (MCSD) is to serve our citizens through collaboration and transparency on behalf of the great state of Louisiana and Mid-City New Orleans. The budget in its entirety is governed by dedicated volunteer commissioners who are beholden to their own community.

The tactical operations are managed by New Orleans Police Department under the command of Sargent Palumbo

  • Every MCSD officer is a NOPD commissioned officer of the New Orleans Police Department (as opposed to security contractors and monitors) with the full range of law enforcement capabilities within their respective jurisdictional limits.
  • In addition to pro-active patrolling and because these units are active, NOPD officers assigned to the MCSD patrols act as regular NOPD units in cases of law enforcement emergencies.
  • They are not to be primary or solely sent calls for service in the district but are, in more cases then not, the first to arrive at a scene, and contain the situation until they are relieved by 1st or 3rd District officers. They are then able to return to their regular activity.

The MCSD jurisdiction overlaps portions of the New Orleans Police Department’s First and Third Districts.
