New Orleans police fight to win trust of local community

The New Orleans police are fighting to win the trust of local people, following cases of corruption, drug dealing and murder within the force.

The police have a new chief and a new mayor and with their help, the police are hoping to regain the trust of a community devastated by Hurricane Katrina in 2005, and last year's oil spill in the region.
