New Year's Eve Gunfire Reduction Campaign

Los Angeles: As each New Year approaches, the Los Angeles Police Department launches its citywide Gunfire Reduction Campaign. This campaign is designed to help reduce incidents of indiscriminate gunfire that has become a deadly New Year's tradition in our city.

The Gunfire Reduction Campaign aims to advise the community that ringing in the New Year with gunfire will not be tolerated in the City of Los Angeles. Discharging a firearm into the air is a felony punishable by one (1) year in state prison. Anyone arrested for discharging a firearm will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

We hope you join our efforts to make this Holiday Season a safe and enjoyable one as we launch our newly produced TV and radio Public Service Announcements (PSA), which will run in conjunction with billboards, school posters, and newspaper advertisements. Video and audio tapes of the public service announcements have been distributed to the media, however additional tapes are available upon request.

A Department Representative will be available on Wednesday December 27, 2000, through Friday December 31, 2000, to explain and/or answer questions related to the problem of New Year's Eve Gunfire. If your station would like to schedule an interview, please contact Officer Guillermo Campos at Media Relations Section at 213-485-3586.

On December 29, 2000, at 10:00 a.m., the Gunfire Reduction Campaign will host a press conference at the Police Academy Gymnasium, located at 1880 N. Academy Road, Elysian Park.

For additional information regarding the 2000-2001 Gunfire Reduction Campaign or the Press Conference, please contact Officer Guillermo Campos, Media Relations Section at 213-485-3586.
