NEW ORLEANS (AP) — New Orleans’ police chief says a new group focused on parade safety during the Mardi Gras season will begin work either late this week or early next week.
Superintendent Shaun Ferguson announced the plans on Monday as he discussed the city’s response to the recent deaths of two people in float-related accidents.
Ferguson says the committee will consider all suggestions, including setting up barriers for the entire length of parade routes.
He says the committees will include city officials, law enforcement and representatives of parade krewes.
