About NAS JRB New Orleans
Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base New Orleans, as it is known today, is a combination of two former air bases. The original facility was located on the shore of Lake Pontchartrain on the northern side of New Orleans. This facility existed from 1941 until 1957 when the base was moved 15 miles south of New Orleans. The air base on Lake Pontchartrain was turned over to the State of Louisiana and became site of the University of New Orleans. In May of 1994 Naval Air Station New Orleans was renamed Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base New Orleans to reflect its goal of accommodating all branches of the Armed Services. NAS JRB New Orleans has a total population of approximately 9,800 with a majority of those being active-duty service members. Encompassing approximately 3,200 acres, NAS JRB New Orleans occupies sections of Belle Chasse in unincorporated Plaquemines Parish in southern.
Facilities within the boundaries of NAS JRB New Orleans include lodging, dining and entertainment, sports and fitness, educational, recreation areas, and a major hospital. However, the majority of NAS JRB New Orleans is devoted to military training, specifically the training of Naval Reservists and the operational, logistical, and fiscal support for tenant commands and transient aircraft on a 24-hour basis. The base also serves as a platform for assistance with homeland security air defense through the Louisiana Air National Guard as well as search and rescue efforts for much of the gulf coast by the U. S. Coast Guard Air Station. NAS JRB also provides aviation intermediate maintenance, supply, comptrollership and personnel support facilities for Navy and Naval Reserve personnel and has for more than 60 years.

What to Do After an Arrest at NAS JRB New OrleansIf you have been arrested on suspicion of DUI, possession of a controlled substance, sexual assault, theft, or any other crime at NAS JRB New Orleans there are a number of steps you need to take immediately. Following an arrest, you should:
- Exercise Your Article 31 Rights - The Right to Remain Silent. Once you have been arrested, you have the right to remain silent, and it is important that you do so. NCIS or Military Police will likely use a number of different tactics to try to get you to admit guilt, but you do not have to (and should not) say anything that could be used against you until you speak with an attorney.
- Exercise Your Right to Legal Representation. The one thing that you should say is that you want to talk to a lawyer. You have the right to legal representation, and having an attorney present during your interrogation will help ensure that you do not say anything or make any other mistakes that could jeopardize your defense.
- Avoid Speaking with Anyone About Your Case. In addition to exercising your right to remain silent with the NCIS or Military Police, you should also avoid speaking with anyone else about your case. Cellmates, friends, and even family members could become witnesses for the government, and it is imperative that you avoid giving prosecutors access – directly or indirectly – to anything that could be used against you.
