The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), also known as the City of Los Angeles Police Department, is the city’s police force. It is the third-largest local police force in the United States, after the New York City Police Department and the Chicago Police Department, with 9,974 officers and 3,000 civilian employees. The department serves a population of 3,979,576 people in an area of 502.73 square miles (1,302.1 km2).
The Los Angeles Rangers, a volunteer organization that supported the existing L.A. County forces, established the first specific Los Angeles police force in 1853.
[number six] The Los Angeles City Guards, another volunteer organization, quickly took over as the Rangers’ successors. Los Angeles became notorious for its crime, gambling, and vice as a result of neither force’s inefficiency. (5)

The OIG reviewed car, pedestrian, and bicycle stops performed by the LAPD in 2019 at the behest of the Los Angeles Police Commission. The study of stop data obtained and retained by the Department under the California Racial and Identity Profiling Act (RIPA) of 2015, as well as a qualitative evaluation of a selection of stop recordings, were the mainstays of this investigation. The OIG looked at data from 712,408 individual stops made by LAPD officers in 2019, with an emphasis on stops initiated by officers rather than those caused by a call for service. A primary focus of this review was to identify and better understand any significant differences – especially possible racial disparities – in the data, in compliance with the Commission’s direction and the intent of the RIPA legislation. In addition to reviewing stop results, the OIG also performed a qualitative video analysis of 190 individual stops that took place in 2019.
The Office of the Inspector General (OIG) completed its evaluation of the process and outcomes of outside contributions made to the Los Angeles Police Department during the 2019 calendar year, as directed by the Police Commission.
The OIG concentrated its investigation on contribution requests made in 2019 and eventually sent to the Board of Police Commissioners (BOPC). Examining policies and procedures, performing site visits, conducting interviews, evaluating paper records, updating and examining digital databases, and reviewing other related materials were all part of the study.

(CBSLA) – LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – In the aftermath of George Floyd’s death and the resulting uproar about law enforcement practices, two Los Angeles County Supervisors have recommended that each police department in the county enact eight use-of-force policies.
Supervisors Janice Hahn and Mark Ridley-Thomas introduced the motion on Wednesday, which would require the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department and all 46 local police departments to implement all eight policies. The prohibition of chokeholds and strangeholds is one of the most notable.

The eight policies were originally compiled by Campaign Zero, a national effort aimed at making police brutality reports more transparent and accessible, as well as using the data to reduce violence.

In Los Angeles County, not a single department has all eight of these policies. Although the LASD does not train deputies to use chokeholds and strangleholds, the motion states that they are not prohibited.

The Los Angeles Police Department is working to develop its surveillance system for cases in which one officer suspects another for using excessive force. Outside the LAPD headquarters, police officers must walk in line. (Los Angeles Times/Brian van der Brug)
With a new state law requiring officers to report excessive force by their superiors, a Los Angeles police chief asked department commanders this summer how many times such reporting had happened in the previous five years.
In a July email accessed by The New York Times via a public records request, Dale Bonner received a five-point response. When The New York Times asked for a rundown of the five cases, LAPD officials said there were just two. Since 2015, they said, there have been only two known instances of an officer filing an unauthorized force complaint against another officer out of thousands of unauthorized force complaints from the public. Both took place in 2016. In one, an officer saw another yank a handcuffed prisoner off a bench and onto the concrete, resulting in a 10-day suspension and demotion for the offending officer. In the other, an officer said he was in a car with two supervisors when one pulled out a handgun and the other triggered a personal stun gun. The first supervisor was suspended for 12 days, while the second was suspended for 22 days.
