Bill Murray ..
a life unfolding


Bill's story concludes
(part 3 of 3)
On this episode of "Community Matters" Bill Murray, once a severely abused child and victim of sexual pedophiles, kidnapping and child pornography, concludes publicly telling his life story for the first time. Now that his parents have died he feels free to do so.  Mr. Murray, a long time recovering alcoholic and drug addict, hopes that revealing his past will help explain his passion for serving the community and improve his effectiveness on both the forum he's founded here at LA Community Policing and the talk show he now hosts under it's umbrella.

On LACP's "Community Matters" Bill advocates for members of society who are weak, vulnerable, innocent, socially outcast, abused, victims of crime, and the physically or mentally challenged.  He often covers public safety topics such as domestic violence, child endangerment, missing people, homelessness, racism, victims rights, judicial reform and homeland security .. among many other things.

Bill Murray ..
a life unfolding


Bill's story revealed
(part 1 of 3)
On this episode of "Community Matters" Bill Murray, once a severely abused child and victim of sexual pedophiles, kidnapping and child pornography, begins to publicly tell his life story for the first time. Now that his parents have died he feels free to do so.  Mr. Murray, a long time recovering alcoholic and drug addict, hopes that revealing his past will help explain his passion for serving the community and improve his effectiveness on both the forum he's founded here at LA Community Policing and the talk show he now hosts under it's umbrella.

On LACP's "Community Matters" Bill advocates for members of society who are weak, vulnerable, innocent, socially outcast, abused, victims of crime, and the physically or mentally challenged.  He often covers public safety topics such as domestic violence, child endangerment, missing people, homelessness, racism, victims rights, judicial reform and homeland security .. among many other things.

At LACP and on "Community Matters" Mr. Murray and other volunteers frequently serve as advocates for community based policing efforts small and large, promoting citizen participation in causes that increase public safety and improve the quality of life.

This episode of "Community Matters" is devoted to remembering the events of 9 -11 - 2001. It's been eight years since the attacks against our country which were the stimulus for the beginnings of the LA Community Policing efforts. The host of "Community Matters" is Bill Murray, founder of LACP, originally a New Yorker. His reaction to the 9 -11 terrorism were expressed in articles that eventually appeared on e-groups and then on his first-ever web site (this one). As time went on the reaction to the site was so overwhelming that LA Community Policing became a non profit organization (originally regional to LA only) and has long since been recognized as the world's biggest grassroots effort devoted to community-based policing.

all about: "Community Matters" - the radio show
with host Bill Murray, LA Community Policing founder (LACP.org)

Community based policing provides a forum for the dissemination of information, sharing of ideas and suggesting of ways Americans can become engaged in making our streets safer, & improve the quality of life.

"Community Matters" has two meanings. We'll discuss issues that concern the community, including local and current event topics, and encourage our participants and listeners to understand the important role volunteers and activists play. We all can make a difference on our block, in our neighborhood, in the towns and cities where we live, in our states, in our country and, finally, in today's world-wide "global village," on the lives of those around us, near and far.

The host of "Community Matters" is Bill Murray, founder of Los Angeles Community Policing (LACP.org), which began as his reaction to 9-11 and has since become the world's biggest grassroots effort devoted to community based policing. The web site features nearly 2000 archived pages of articles and information and has been continuously published since early 2002.

"I have long felt that America has an untapped inner resource, her people," says Bill, "whose contributions could be enormous if moderately supported. The universe responds when folks serve their communities, taking social service positions within them. All participation is important, and WHAT one does matters less than the fact that everyone can, and should, do SOMEthing."

"Community-based policing (policing with a small "p") means leaving something in better shape than you find it," Bill continues. "It's not just about public safety, although crime and it's prevention is certainly a prominent issue for LACP. But it also speaks to the many ways a community can become involved in watching over each other, participating in self governance, lending a hand in neighborhood projects and improving the quality of life."

We're hoping you'll join us regularly for lively discussions and topics that matter .. to you and to your community.
