LA Community Supports Public Safety With Passage of Proposition Q

Los Angeles: Last Tuesday, March 5, 2002, the voters of Los Angeles, faced with a choice to support or not support the passage of Proposition Q (the 911-Police-Fire-Paramedic Citywide Security General Obligation Bond), responded to the challenge by voting to support passage of Proposition Q. Proposition Q passed after receiving the requisite 2/3 "yes" votes.

Responding to the news, Los Angeles Chief of Police Bernard C. Parks exclaimed, "Thank you; Thank you; Thank you, Los Angeles."

Proposition Q is a $600 million general obligation bond, for construction, repair and renovation of police and fire stations and public safety facilities throughout Los Angeles. Proposition Q projects includes the construction of two new police stations, the replacement of four police stations and the badly needed repair of 11 police stations.

Further commenting on the news of Proposition Q’s passage, Chief Parks stated, "We went to the community seeking their support and they, as they have for decades, responded in kind. The community’s support of this proposition is a mandate for the need for efficacy. It sends a clear message of the community’s unwavering support for the men and women of the Los Angeles Police Department, and for public safety in general."

This press release was prepared by Lieutenant Horace E. Frank, Officer in Charge, Media Relations Section, 213-485-3586.
