LAPD Chief Beck's Monthly Message - October 2013 Oct
LAPD Chief
Charlie Beck
LAPD Chief's Message
October 2013

by Chief of Police Charlie Beck

Last month four newly appointed Police Commissioners began their service on our civilian oversight board.  Steve Soboroff, Paula Madison, Kathleen Kim, and Sandra Figueroa-Villa were all chosen by Mayor Garcetti to succeed former Commissioners Andrea Ordin, John Mack, Richard Drooyan and Rafael Bernardino, Jr.

Commissioners Soboroff, Madison, Kim and Figueroa-Villa come from varied backgrounds where they have experienced tremendous success and gained knowledge that will serve them well in their capacity as Los Angeles Police Commissioners.  I look forward to working closely with them as we share common goals and objectives to better our Department and continue the valuable partnerships with those who live, visit and work in our City.

LAPD's 30th Annual "National Night Out" - Tuesday, Aug 6, 2013 Aug
Celebrating the 30th Annual "National Night Out" - Tue, Aug 6, 2013

"National Night Out" is a yearly event where neighbors reconnect with one another and give crime and drugs a going away party. All over the country, public safety groups and their law enforcement partners will celebrate its 30th anniversary this year.

The introduction of National Night Out, “America's Night Out Against Crime”, in 1984 began an effort to promote involvement in crime prevention activities, police-community partnerships, neighborhood camaraderie and send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back. NATW's National Night Out program culminates annually, on the first Tuesday of August.

Across America you should check with your local police department to find out about the events happening near you!

LAPD Chief Beck's Monthly Message - August 2013 Aug
LAPD Chief
Charlie Beck
LAPD Chief's Message
Chief Charlie Beck
August 2013


by Chief of Police Charlie Beck

This past May, U.S District Judge Gary Feess formally lifted the consent decree which ended the federal oversight that was imposed on the Department back in 2001.  At the time the consent decree was imposed, we were a much different Department.  The wounds from high profile incidents of misconduct were still fresh and our standing in the community was on shaky ground.  While some may have resisted the idea of federal oversight and mandatory reforms at the time, the consent decree was the foundation for what our Department has become today. 

Ideals such as constitutional policing, community policing, transparency and accountability are now hallmarks of our organization.  Public approval ratings of our Department are at an all-time high and diversity in our ranks mirror that of the communities we serve.  With time, came change and with change, came respect.  We have now regained our status as a world-class law enforcement agency which I believe is second to none.

July 2013


by Chief of Police Charlie Beck

This month marks a new chapter in our City's storied history.  In May, Angelinos elected Eric Garcetti to be the 42nd mayor of Los Angeles. Having served as President of the City Council for six years, Mayor Garcetti has been an advocate for public safety and one of our strongest supporters.

His leadership during his council years and his time serving in the US Navy has served him well and now he is set to lead our City into the future.

LAPD Chief's Message
Chief Charlie Beck
June 2013


by Chief of Police Charlie Beck

The month of June marks the start of the summer months and many organized events I'm especially proud of.  Programs and events our Department is involved in go a long way in helping the youth in our City steer clear of gangs and gang violence.  One of these programs, which has been recognized nationally for its effectiveness, is Summer Night Lights.  Now in its sixth year, the Summer Night Lights Program is an example of collaboration and community policing at its finest.  Thirty-two parks in some of our most vulnerable neighborhoods throughout the City will remain open after dark, providing a safe haven for families and strengthening the bond between us and our communities.  I urge you to get involved and be an active participant in the program whenever possible.  It's yet another opportunity for you to be a positive influence on our youth.

May 2013


by Chief of Police Charlie Beck

Service to your country or community brings with it a level of gratification that can only come with helping others. Whether you serve your country by wearing the uniform of our armed services or you serve your community by pinning your badge on your LAPD blues, helping others is something you can be very proud of. During the month of May we pause to remember those who so proudly served our country and our communities while making the ultimate sacrifice in the name of public service. For 204 LAPD officers giving their lives in the line of duty was a reality.

Feb 2013


by Chief of Police Charlie Beck

This month marks the formal addition of General Services Police Department into the ranks of the LAPD family. I take great satisfaction knowing we have complemented our organization with such dedicated and talented individuals. I know together we will continue to have a positive impact on the communities we serve.

Community Relations -- With every radio call you handle and every interaction you have, you have an opportunity to make a positive and lasting impression on the community we serve. I truly believe in treating people as you would like to be treated or as you would expect the police to treat one of your family members.
