NEW ORLEANS - Mayor Mitch Landrieu, Police Superintendent Michael Harrison, and the New Orleans City Council will host a press conference to kick-off the Wednesday, September 13, 2017, Geaux Blue NOLA Day celebration. Geaux Blue NOLA Day is a special day established by Resolution of the New Orleans City Council as an annual day of recognition of the vital importance of the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) to the well-being of our community. All residents are encouraged to Geaux Blue on this day by wearing blue clothing or ribbons and decorating their homes, mailboxes, trees and businesses with big, beautiful blue wreaths, bows, lights and other decorative items. The men and women of NOPD will be able to see blue wherever they work in the City and know that they are appreciated.
Local landmarks, such as the Mercedes Benz Superdome, Smoothie King Arena, Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, and Entergy New Orleans buildings will light up in blue on the evening of Geaux Blue NOLA Day. School administrators have also been asked to encourage their students to show their appreciation by inviting officers to come out and speak to their class, by creating special artwork, writing notes or making goodies to deliver to the officers at district stations, and by holding pep rallies.

In addition, the first citywide How Will You Geaux Blue Contest will be launched.
