He is supporting more citizen in- volvement by speaking to civic groups explaining his programs for fighting crime. He has visited high-crime hous- ing areas where he talks with tenants. He wants the criminal element to know that it is not welcome. Nolan takes his dedication into all aspects of his life. While in Homewood, he entered the Archdiocese of Chicago's diaconate program. "I feel that being a deacon is a way I have of giving all of my many bless- ings back to others," he says. He has been called a seasoned and articulate speaker, and has not lost his "N'Yawlins" accent. Nolan likes to relate his work experiences into his homilies and he has plenty of experi- ence. Between New Orleans and Chi- cago, he stood security for almost every U.S. president since John F. Kennedy. Dignitaries, chiefs of state and celebri- ties were under his protection. Police work provided a turning point in his family's life came when he and his wife Gay and their small children were in New Orleans. Hurricane Betsy in 1965 caused many families to evacu- ate hurriedly. Nolan was in a command position with the police force and unable to check on his own family for 24 hours. Not knowing whether they were alive or not is a memory Nolan says he will never forget. When his family was located and found to be safe, but homeless, the outpouring of help from friends and strangers was extraordinary, he says. The Nolans are members of Im- maculate Conception parish.
