Community Policing Unit
Opportunities
 
 
The Los Angeles Police Department strongly embraces the philosophy of Community Policing in all its daily operations and functions. Community Policing is based upon a partnership between the police and the community whereby the police and the community share responsibility for identifying, reducing, eliminating and preventing problems that impact community safety and order. By working together, the police and the community can reduce the fear and incidence of crime and improve the quality of life in neighborhoods citywide. In this effort, the community and police work as partners to identify and prioritize problems of crime and disorder and share the responsibility for the development and implementation of proactive problem-solving strategies to address identified issues. The strategies used prove success because they mobilize the efforts and resources of the police, the community and local government.

If you have any inquiries regarding our Community Policing Programs, please contact the Community Policing Unit, Office of Operations, at 213-486-6960 or e-mail us at ComPolicing@lapd.lacity.org.

Community-Police Problem Solving (CPPS)

This is the LAPD's model for proactively solving community problems. Community-Police Problem Solving uses the "SARA" approach (Scanning, Analysis, Response, and Assessment) to examine characteristics of problems in the community and to develop appropriate strategies to reduce these community-identified crime and disorder issues. The objective is to reduce, eliminate or provide a better way of effectively responding to neighborhood problems. We are in the process of training all police officers in C-PPS. Currently, a committee consisting of a police officer and community members is developing C-PPS training for community members as well.


Community-Police Advisory Boards (CPABs)

Each of the 21 geographic Areas in the Los Angeles Police Department has a CPAB. A CPAB is an Area-level community board comprised of members from the various residential and business communities who live or work in a particular geographic area. The purpose of the CPAB is to provide advice to the Area Commanding Officer regarding decreasing the incidence and fear of crime in the community, as well as to provide community members with a voice in the policing of their communities. In addition, the Area Commanding Officer provides updates and explanations of Department programs to members of the CPAB.

Each CPAB has two co-chairs – one is the Area Commanding Officer and the other is a member of the community. The members of the CPAB are selected by the Area Commanding Officer with recommendations from the community. To learn more about how you can participate in the CPAB, contact your local community police station or review the enclosed C-PAB brochure.
