Dozens of tan and camouflaged Humvees converged near the banks of the Mississippi River where commanders gave orders to secure the ghostly neighborhoods most devastated by the storm. "If the criminals control, our families won't return," Louisiana Gov. Kathleen Blanco told about 100 Guard soldiers and about 60 state police who will take their posts by Tuesday evening. Two hundred more Guard troops are due within a week. Guardsmen and women from around the nation were called in after Katrina to secure the city and quell looting, but they departed in February. A rising murder rate, the return of drugs and the killing of five teens on Saturday galvanized officials to accelerate their plan to reinforce city police over the summer.
