LAPD Expands Community Policing Program, Appoints Black Female Deputy Chief

LAPD Expands Community Policing Program, Appoints Black Female Deputy Chief

As part of a reimagining of law enforcement after the killing of George Floyd, the Los Angeles Police Department is expanding its signature community policing program. The Community Safety Partnership, which began in 2011 in some of the city’s most troubled housing developments, is credited with reducing violent crime and improving relationships with residents through initiatives such as youth football teams.

The expansion of CSP comes as other LAPD units are being closely scrutinized for potential cuts. Responding to days of street protests calling for resources to be shifted from policing to programs that help Black and Latino residents, the City Council recently slashed $150 million from the LAPD budget.

Proponents of CSP say its expansion will transform the culture of the 10,000-officer LAPD, where success has traditionally been measured by arrests and crime statistics. Now, building trust with local residents will be paramount, Chief Michel Moore said. CSP will now have its own bureau within the LAPD, headed by Emada Tingirides, a Watts native who was one of the program’s founding officers. She will become the LAPD’s second Black female deputy chief. - Los Angles Times

Police Commission
The Function and Role of the Board of Police Commissioners

Under the City Charter, the Board of Police Commissioners is the head of the Police Department. The Board sets overall policy while the Chief of Police manages the daily operations of the Department and implements the Board's policies or policy direction and goals.

The Board of Police Commissioners, originally created in the 1920's, is comprised of five civilians who donate their time to the City while maintaining their professional careers. They are appointed by the Mayor and confirmed by the City Council. The Commissioners serve a maximum of two five-year terms. The Commissioners routinely spend 25-50 hours per week on Commission business, and serve as the citizens' voice in police affairs and as a means of ensuring more responsive and effective City government.

The Commissioners' concerns are reflective of the community-at-large, and their priorities include implementing recommended reforms, improving service to the public by the Department, reducing crime and the fear of crime, and initiating, implementing and supporting community policing programs.

FEMA's COVID-19 Vaccine Update

---------

In alignment with President Biden’s plan to respond to COVID-1, FEMA will work with other federal agencies to coordinate with state, tribal and territorial authorities and private sector partners and others to assist, augment and expedite vaccinations in the United States.

Key Messages
  • As of Feb. 23, FEMA has provided more than $3.81 billion to 35 states, Washington D.C., three tribes and five territories for expenses related to COVID-19 vaccination at 100% federal cost share. These funds cover critical supplies, staffing, training and transportation needs that support increased vaccination efforts.
  • FEMA is committed to the equitable distribution of vaccines and ensuring every person who wants a vaccine can get one. We're working with state, tribal and territorial partners and analyzing data from the CDC and U.S. Census Bureau to locate Community Vaccination Centers pilot program sites to reach underserved populations.
  • Earlier this month, two Community Vaccination Centers opened in California. This week, sites are opening in New York and Texas. Additional pilot sites are opening soon, including four sites in Florida, four in New York and one in Philadelphia.
  • Even as FEMA is focused on supporting vaccination distribution efforts, the agency is supporting multiple disasters, including the disaster declaration for Texas . Since the Feb. 19 declaration, we've awarded more than $5.7 million dollars to survivors. This assistance can help with temporary housing and home repairs and other resources to help eligible individuals and business owners start the recovery process.

Review CERT Roles for Qualifications by November 26

Review
Qualifications
for CERT Roles
by Nov. 26

 

Calling everyone in the CERT community! You have an opportunity to provide feedback on CERT position descriptions. To ensure both volunteers and incident management staff are on the same page when called upon to support a disaster, FEMA has developed specific definitions and qualifications for three key positions: CERT Volunteer, CERT Section Chief, and CERT Team Leader.

One benefit of incorporating CERT positions into the NQS is that it will also add them to the new OneResponder tool. OneResponder is a free, web-based system that uses a uniform terminology and approach to certify emergency personnel. Task books can be accessed on OneResponder using your smartphone, tablet, and online. To learn more about OneResponder, please visit www.oneresponder.net.

The CERT program informs volunteers on the hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills. CERT offers a consistent, nationwide approach to volunteer training and organization. Professional first responders can rely on CERT volunteers during disaster situations, allowing them to focus on more complex tasks.
