LAPD Chief Beck's Monthly Message - July 2016 Jul

Charlie Beck
LAPD Partners with Celebrities to Launch the #StopTheViolence Campaign

LAPD Chief's Message
July 2016

by Chief of Police Charlie Beck

In 2015, nearly one thousand people were shot in the City of Los Angeles. Unfortunately, the vast majority of shooting victims were young men of color shot by other young men of color. According to Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck, "Far too many of our young men are victims of senseless shootings at the hand of suspects who look just like them. The time for change is here. The time to unify is now! Together we must stop the violence."

On Wednesday, July 20, 2016, Chief Beck teamed up with Compton rapper The Game to launch the first in a series of Public Service Announcements (PSA) to encourage the community to hear this message and more importantly, have the strength and courage to implement it so that ultimately, the result is peaceful action.

Preservation of Life Medal

As many of you may know, we are going to begin to recognize acts of heroism performed by LAPD officers that have not been formally acknowledged in the past. Everyday, we see LAPD officers going to extraordinary lengths to preserve the lives of both suspects and victims. Sometimes these kinds of heroic actions, where no deadly force was used, don't get recognized within the current award structure. The establishment of the Chief of Police Preservation of Life medal is designed to fill that gap.
