The Metropolitan Division (Metro) of the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) was created in 1933 as a compact, mobile crime-fighting unit that worked throughout the City to suppress criminal activity. Today, the primary responsibility of Metro is to provide support to the Department’s community-based policing efforts by deploying additional crime suppression resources throughout the City. Assignments include uniformed crime suppression details, as well as responding to high-risk barricaded situations, stakeouts, security details, warrant service, and assisting investigators in solving major crimes. Currently serving as the Commanding Officer of Metropolitan Division is Captain III John Incontro.

Mission Statement


The mission of Metropolitan Division is to support the Department’s community-based policing efforts to reduce the incidence and the fear of crime on a Citywide basis. This is accomplished by developing and deploying a reserve force of the most highly trained and disciplined personnel possible. The effectiveness of the Department’s incident commanders in realizing the long-term goals of the Department is enhanced by Metropolitan Division’s controlled application of specialized tactics/equipment and the ongoing training and leadership provided by Metropolitan Division to the Department.
