The New Orleans Police and Justice Foundation (NOPJF) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting the people and processes of the criminal justice system in New Orleans. Originally founded in 1995 as the New Orleans Police Foundation, the organization was established to enhance the operations and capacities of the New Orleans Police Department. In 2003, the Foundation expanded its role to include other elements of the New Orleans criminal justice system. NOPJF also played a significant role in the reconstruction of the New Orleans criminal justice system following Hurricane Katrina.
