Sixth District Commander Bob Bardy replied to an officer’s request for mountain-bike training as an incentive for good work by praising the idea but stressing the need for the evening shift to return to “its former proactive posture of 40 arrests a week” and saying he would not send anyone “who does not support these goals,” according to Mike Perlstein and our partners at WWL-TV. The ACLU says that message runs afoul of a state law against tying promotions to arrest quotas, WWL reports, but NOPD spokeswoman Remi Braden said it showed Bardy monitoring officer’s activity and motivating them to do better.
