What: News Conference

When: Wednesday, February 25, 2004, at 9:00 a.m.

Los Angeles: On Wednesday, February 25, 2004, Chief William J. Bratton will join members of the Los Angeles Police Foundation (LAPF), representatives from Cingular Wireless, and Research In Motion (RIM), to announce the donation of around 200 Blackberry Wireless Handheld Communication Devices for the Los Angeles Police Department’s Senior Lead Officers (SLOs).

During the press conference, Senior Lead Officers, and community members who regularly communicate with their SLOs by way of the Blackberrys, will be available to demonstrate the devices and answer questions.
