The office of Inspector General says the NOPD made significant progress in its reporting of rapes.
Auditors examined the NOPD's reporting of rapes over a three-month period.
From October through December of last year, the OIG found the NOPD classified 99% of all sex crimes correctly.
They also found that more than 50% of calls were upgraded, while none of the calls for service were downgraded to lesser crimes.
It's a far cry from a report released by the OIG back in November 2014. That's when the OIG found a lack of oversight and factual documentation on more than 100 sex crime cases. Since that report six NOPD supervisors and five officers are facing disciplinary hearings.
