Operations-West Bureau hosts Adult Community Police Academy: 11 week course

Purpose
The ten-week academy begins February 21 and is designed to give community members an overview of the Los Angeles Police Department’s policies and procedures. The curriculum and teaching methods are similar to the traditional law enforcement academy; however, the weekly sessions are not designed to certify the participant as a law enforcement officer.
Through the Community Police Academy, enrolled students will be encouraged to build a lasting partnership with the Department, with the ultimate goal of reducing crime and improving the quality of life in our neighborhoods.
For registration and further information, please contact Operations-West Bureau, at 213-473-0277.

Academy Schedule
The ten-week courses are held at various locations within the West Bureau area. The courses conclude with a graduation ceremony.
Details on off-site training locations will be presented during the first class. There is no fee to attend the Community Police Academy. Due to limited class space, candidates are accepted on a first come, first served basis, until each class is filled.

Have you signed up to count yet?

Make a difference in helping reduce homelessness by volunteering for the Greater Los Angeles Homeless Count in January. This incredibly important undertaking is one of the biggest ways we identify needed services and emerging trends.

Each year, the LA Homeless Services Authority works with volunteers who spread out across the City to count the homeless in order to get a better picture of their scope and demographics.
The count in Brentwood takes place
Wednesday, January 24
8:00pm
starting at the Brentwood School, 100 S Barrington Pl.

This will be a visual-only tally of homeless on Brentwood streets — you will not be sent into encampments. It will take a few hours. If you can help, please sign up to volunteer to count in Brentwood
Sign Up Here

The Greater Los Angeles Homeless Count performs the count so they may make informed decisions and create solutions. It enables them to gather important data that is key for us to bring about an end to homelessness in Los Angeles.

Last year nearly 8,000 people registered to volunteer.
Please help us beat that record in 2018!
