Time delay 

Council puts off hearing on NOPD off-duty details

  The New Orleans City Council Budget/Audit/Board of Review Committee delayed a hearing last week on the Landrieu administration's controversial overhaul of the New Orleans Police Department's (NOPD) off-duty security details. Last week was the third delay of the hearing since the beginning of April.

  According to a report in The Times-Picayune, the move to push back the debate followed a private, late-night meeting between city officials and representatives of police officers' associations, which have opposed the proposal. — CHARLES MALDONADO
