Just posted this story... The New Orleans Police Department's manpower has reached its lowest point in 35 years, and that shortage of officers has led to new lows in the city's number of arrests and cases accepted for prosecution, a new study by the Metropolitan Crime Commission found.

Arrests and prosecutions of new felony cases each fell by 15 percent in the first half of 2013 compared with the same period in 2012, the report released Wednesday said, noting both numbers are at their lowest point since the commission began tracking them in 2007. The dip in arrests came during a time when the overall crime rate remained largely unchanged, according to NOPD data.

"NOPD manpower is the biggest challenge facing public safety in New Orleans," he said. "It's the single most important issue."
