LAPD Adds Podcasts to Web Site

Los Angeles: Today, the Los Angeles Police Department unveiled audio podcasting as a part of its web site, LAPDOnline.org, and its blog.

The first podcast added was Police Chief William Bratton’s news conference yesterday, November 14, at which he addressed the recent spate of video-taped arrests.

"The technology has evolved from reading web pages, to two-way communication with the blog, and now visitors can actually listen to the spoken word," said LAPD spokesman Lieutenant Paul Vernon. "It's just an other example of the LAPD's commitment to maintain an open line of communication with the public it serves."

Internet visitors can access the LAPD's web sites at www.LAPDOnline.org and www.LAPDblog.org.
