Chief William J. Bratton's Welcome Message

Dear Reader,

Welcome to the LAPD Blog.  Our online journal is an interactive tool that we use to deliver real-time, unfiltered information.  We invite you to take a look inside the Department to learn more about the men and women in blue who have sworn to protect and to serve you.

By using this Blog, the LAPD hopes to maintain an open dialogue with the communities we serve and those who have an interest in the men and women of this organization.  We encourage you to express your opinions about current events through respectful and insightful discussion.  We reserve the right to refuse to post those comments that contain inappropriate language and/or material.  In the near future, we intend to expand our Blogging capabilities to all 19 Area Stations.

The continuing decline in crime in Los Angeles has positioned the LAPD at the tipping point for change.  Our influence can positively affect the communities we serve and vastly improve levels of public satisfaction.  But it is not enough for the LAPD to just continue to drive down crime.  Through compassionate and constitutional community policing practices, we want to enhance the relationship between the Los Angeles residents and police.

Our ultimate goal is for the role of law enforcement officials to evolve from distance protectors and rapid responders to true partners and conduits for meaningful social change.

Thank you for your support of the Los Angeles Police Department. Please visit our Blog again or visit www.lapdonline.org.

This Blog is a good place for decent police to find what crackheads are doing in their leisure time. One crackhead implies that the police was justified to beat a boy, a reporter, and other innocent people. Some other crackheads praise the lousy job the chief is doing, when in reality he is not hiring the best men, just a bunch of criminals. And another crackhead thinks Ms. Hilton was under the custody of LAPD. I don’t think this Blog is worth visiting any longer.

Chief.

Just arrest the criminals. Cooperate with ICE and deport them. If you don't have room for the thugs, copy what Arizona does. Place them in tents in the desert.

Forget about taxing homeowners for such funds. Like programs exist and have failed.

Arrest them!

C. Benton
