LAPD reassigning 30 officers to patrol USC area.
LAPD patrol/sweep in Skid Row.
Just last week Mayor Tony told all that one of his proposals for his new city budget is to lay off civilian employees of the Los Angeles Police Department . I guess maybe he thinks it is time for sworn personnel to take over these civilian positions. But wait just yesterday as noted in the LA Downtown news Chief Beck is reassigning 40 additional police officers to patrol the downtown Skid Row area of Los Angeles. It appears that violent crime is on the uptake in this area. Now today Mayor Tony along with representative of the Los Angeles Police Department and USC School Security Staff are having an announcement where as the city well also provide additional police officers to the Southwest Division area in response to yet another area of Los Angeles that is experiencing an increase in violent crime.
Already Chief Beck has redeployed police officers from various police divisions to both 77th. and Harbor Divisions. It is now time for both Chief Beck and Mayor Tony to tell the residents of our once great city what is really taking place and for both of them to be honest surrounding the increase of both violent crime and gang violence within our city.
Remember that Mayor Tony stated that he wanted to combine those employees ( police officers ) of the City' General Services to roll over as Los Angeles Police Officers. Did anyone brother to ask how much money is it going to cost the city to enroll those General Service employees into the police academy for additional and more comprehensive training . Do these same employees need to also have a new and more comprehensive background check?
