Our New Orleans Infragard chapter is part of the FBI's public-private partnership established to generate a community of support against terrorism and crime in New Orleans. Within southeast Louisiana, we provide an umbrella communication structure for members to get to know different segments in our, and other communities in the US, before, during and after a crisis. We also affiliate with Infragard chapters in other cities, along the Gulf Coast, and with other like minded organizations to share community knowledge, education and information.
InfraGard is an organization dedicated to the protection of the United States and the American people. In order to maintain a level of trust within the membership, all applicants undergo a background check performed by the FBI (for this reason InfraGard membership is currently limited to United States citizens). Applications are then screened according to a defined criteria and then passed to the local chapter for final acceptance (individual chapters may have more strict criteria).
To assist us in providing programs we have a suggested membership donation fee of $35 payable by credit card or PayPal at this link:
