LAPD-Community Join Together to Improve Police Encounters during Traffic Stops

"LAPD-Community Join Together to Improve Police Encounters during Traffic Stops"

 

Los Angeles: On Friday, August 30, 2002, at 1:30 p.m., at 8915 South Broadway, in front of Mays Medical Clinic, The Los Angeles Police Department, in partnership with local Community leaders will hold a public demonstration on police stops and detention. The purpose is to explain to the public ways of making police stops less stressful. This is not an effort to place blame on anyone. It is a simple effort to enhance Police/Community relations.

The catalysts for this effort are Dr. James Mays, a well known cardiologist and founder of Adopt-A-Family, Pastor Lowe Barry, founder of Crusaders for Liberty and Justice for All, and Reverend Bill Jones of the Little Wooden Church cable television program. They understand that police/public contacts are stressful and often embarrassing for the person being stopped. On the other hand, police/public contacts can create anxiety for the police officer.

Dr. Mays and his group, with assistance from Law Enforcement Officials, has developed an innovative instructional pamphlet that features detailed recommendations in the event a citizen is stopped or detained by a law enforcement officer. These pamphlets will be made available to the public.

Doctor Geraldine Washington, President, Los Angeles Chapter of the NAACP and Janet H. Williams, Captain, Los Angeles County Sheriffs Department and President of the Southern California Chapter of NOBLE will be on hand to provide comments regarding their partnership in this endeavor.

Anyone with further questions is requested to contact Deputy Chief Willie L. Pannell Commanding Officer, Operation South Bureau at 213-485-4251.
