LA Community Policing Calendar
LACP.org is very please to announce the launch of a brand new, city-wide,
interactive community service, the Los Angeles Community Policing
Just click here to view it (it's also always available off the LACP.org
Listed on the new LA Community Policing Calendar you'll find an
ongoing and constantly updated stream of current community based
policing and community government events.
Anyone at all can submit a listing for their area, and we've
color coded the calendar to make it easy to see what's happening
in your part of town.
Anything in listed in BLACK
will be events that belong to the entire City, such as Police Commission
meetings, Townhall meetings, and special events such as Golf Tournaments,
etc. ... but Division events will be color coded by Bureau for ease
Well list the events on the LA Community Policing calendar as follows:
Typical events we'd like to see included will be Open Houses, C-PAB
meetings, Special Bureau events ... in short, anything you'd like
to see posted.
Feel free to send them in ...
Just click on the "ADD EVENT" button on the calendar itself,
fill in the easy-to-use form, and send us your request. As soon
as we can, we'll approve and post your listing.
Please be sure to include your phone number and contact information.
And please be sure to let us know what Bureau and Division your
calendar event belongs to, so that we can color code it correctly.
But that's it! It's that simple ...
As soon as your submission is received, reviewed and approved by
Los Angeles Community Policing it will appear to everyone. In this
way, anyone in the Department or anyone in the community can send
in a submission, but inappropriate events will not get on the calendar
(those that do not relate to community based policing specifically,
and community involvement in government in general).
For now, since there's but one "master" calendar, we'll
want to list the community events that are City-wide, Bureau-wide
and Division-wide ... those that are larger than a Basic Car Meeting
or a single Neighborhood Watch.
But eventually, we'd like to offer separate calendars for each of
the 18 Divisions as well, and we'll have either the Division's Community
Relations Officer or a designated community member be the official
administrator of each one. The only thing stopping us from doing
this now is the cost ... because each calendar needs to be licensed.
But this is what we're headed for.
When we do, all local community events can be listed within a Division
calendar, even smaller style events, including Neighborhood Watch
announcements, Basic Car Meetings, community clean-ups, and perhaps
even the individual Neighborhood Council meetings.
This is a wonderful calendar system, because separate calendars
will be able to be viewed either by themselves or in any combination
at all. For example, eventually if you only wanted to view the Hollywood
and Pacific calendars together you could as to see just those two,
but if you wanted to see what's happening in all of South Bureau
you could select that group.
On the other hand, with a click a button, you could see all
the LA Community Policing calendars displayed together, and might
be able to plan the schedule for your upcoming event to avoid any
significant conflict in dates and times with others.
Once again, a new event can be submitted in a few minutes, and will
instantly appear to everyone as soon as the calendar administrator
approves it. Corrections and changes to an existing entry can be
made very quickly, too. They'll appear immediately, as soon as the
administrator is notified.
We feel this is a tool whose time has come, and are happy to serve
the City, Department and community by offering you the LA Community
So get busy ... send in you stuff!
Yours in service,
Director, LA Community Policing
We are very grateful for the contribution made to the Los Angeles
community by Bill Fisher, of Fisher Engineering, and his community
website "SouthBayCalendar" which has made this possible,
and to John M. Mavar, Harbor Area Director for Mayor James Hahn,
who introduced us.
