Why: Harbor Area Teen CPAB was established in January 2006 and is the first of its kind in LAPD history. Its motto: “Doing the Hard Right Instead of the Easy Wrong.” Teens have partnered with community groups and schools. Teen members have been instrumental in reducing teen violence and crime including after school fights and tagging incidents by bringing a youthful perspective to problem solving.

Partnering with public and private organizations and agencies, the group produced an anti-graffiti and curfew awareness public service announcements and planned and implemented the Department’s first two Teen Police Conferences. It’s ultimate goal of giving teens a voice in problem solving and establishing trust and building solid relationships with officers have been accomplished. “The Harbor Area Teen CPAB is truly a model of how our police department can work with young people, not against them, to make our neighborhoods safer and keep kids out of trouble,” said Councilwoman Janice Hahn. “Thanks to Senior Lead Officer Joe Buscaino, we have seen a decrease in teen violence in the Harbor Area and this teen CPAB is being replicated all over the city.”

Chief William Bratton’s philosophy on community policing emphasizes the importance of three components: partnership, prevention and problem solving. Teen CPAB successes have been attributed to these three community policing components. This teen organization now has a voice as it relates to community policing.
