For more than a decade, New Iberia residents have not had a dedicated city police department, thus relying on the Iberia Parish Sheriff's Office for protection. However, with the election of Mayor Freddie DeCourt in 2016 and a voter-approved sales tax last fall to fund the new department, the residents of New Iberia once again have a dedicated city police department to protect and serve their great city.
The community rallied together for the official swearing-in of New Iberia City Police officers on June 19th at the steps of City Hall in New Iberia.
The newly formed department will be lead by Police Chief Todd D'Albor.
