Department Responds to Councilman Nate Holden

"Department Responds to Councilman Nate Holden"

 

Los Angeles: In a news advisory released earlier today, Councilmember Nate Holden criticized the actions of a Los Angeles Police Department Officer involved in a shooting on April 24, 2002, and questioned information released about the incident. On April 25, 2002, a press release describing the shooting was given to the media. Councilman Holden was also given additional information about the incident by LAPD personnel over the following weekend.

As in all officer involved shooting incidents, this matter will be thoroughly investigated according to LAPD policy and procedure and in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations. The investigative process will include the involvement of the Office of the Inspector General, the District Attorney's Office, and the Board of Police Commissioners. Councilman Holden and the public can be confident that the investigation will examine every available detail of the incident. Results of the investigation, which are a matter of public record, will be made available when appropriate.

Statements by Councilman Holden that suggest a lack of leadership in the Police Department or a deviation from long standing LAPD policy and procedure are inflammatory and inaccurate.

Detectives assigned to the Department's Robbery Homicide Division and Critical Incident Investigation Division are conducting this investigation. Anyone with information regarding this investigation is urged to call 213-485-2531 during business hours. On weekends and during off-hours, call the 24-hour toll free number at Detective Information Desk at 1-877-LAWFULL (1-877-529-3855).

This press release was prepared by Sergeant John Pasquariello, Media Relations Section, 213-485-3586.
