Gulf Coast Bank & Trust Company Supports NOLA Coalition

July 19, 2022


NEW ORLEANS (July 14, 2022) - Today Gulf Coast Bank & Trust Company donated $50,000 to On Scene Services (OSS) in support of NOLA Coalition with the goal of freeing up New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) resources and making New Orleans a safer city.

OSS employs off-duty, reserve or retired officers to respond to reported car accidents in New Orleans. The aim is to allow NOPD officers to focus their time and resources on major crimes while also reducing the time that drivers involved in accidents need to wait before assistance arrives.

“For the citizens of the metro area, this will be a better experience. Instead of waiting hours for officers to respond, OSS will provide a timely response to the scene of car accidents,” said Guy T. Williams, President and CEO of Gulf Coast Bank & Trust Company.  “By not tying up NOPD officers at the scene of car accidents, they will be allowed to focus on the major crimes plaguing the city.”

Gulf Coast Bank & Trust Co. encourages other businesses, individuals, and civic and religious organizations to support OSS and make New Orleans a better and safer city.
