Chief Beck

 Mayor Villaraigosa

Chief Charlie Beck and Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa highlighted the achievements of the hard working men and women of the Los Angeles Police Department on Chief Beck’s one year anniversary as Chief of Police on Wednesday, November 17, 2010, in the CompStat Room of the LAPD Administration Building,

In November 2009, Chief Charlie Beck was appointed Chief of the Los Angeles Police Department, overseeing the third largest police department in the United States. Under Chief Beck’s leadership and management, crime has continued to drop to historic lows throughout the City.

Over the past year, Chief Beck has redeployed officers from specialized units to local divisions to enhance patrol capabilities throughout the City. This reallocation of officers has been a key factor in the continued reduction in crime during a time of budget constraints that has halted the Department's growth and removed officers from the street.

In addition to reducing crime, Chief Beck has stepped up the City's counter terrorism efforts, has reduced the DNA backlog, and has expanded the Police Cadet program. Chief Beck has also established the first ever Biased Policing Unit--a unit that is solely dedicated to investigating biased policing complaints.
