Sergeant Robert Barrere

Sergeant Robert “Rob” Barrere is from Metairie, Louisiana. He first joined the NOPD in October 2004 as a 7th District Patrolman, then moved to the 6th District Task Force and 6th District Investigations. In December of 2012, Barrere started working in the Homicide Unit. He was promoted to Sergeant in 2018 and remained in Homicide, where he currently supervises the Cold Case Division. He says one of the most rewarding experiences is when he is able to bring closure to a family who has lost a loved one. Barrere is most proud to lead and work amongst dedicated, hard working, and intelligent detectives. In his free time, Barrere likes to run and stay active, listen to music, read novels, watch Wes Anderson films, and spend time with his family.


Thank you Rob Barrere for your dedicated service to our community through NOPD Criminal Investigative Division – Cold Case Unit.
