Statement from Los Angeles Police Department NR12340ne

Los Angeles:  Immediately following the shooting incident that occurred in Aurora Colorado, the Los Angeles Police Department dispatched officers to major venues where the movie “The Dark Night” was playing.  No incidents occurred in the City of Los Angeles.  

Today, and in the immediate future, the LAPD will be providing hi-visibility patrol to major theaters in Los Angeles, as well as other sporting events, concerts and crowded venues.  Our presence will be both uniformed officers as well as undercover officers.

 “I am outraged by the cowardly attack on innocent movie patrons in Colorado last night" said LAPD Chief Charlie Beck."  Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families of those innocent victims.  Since Los Angeles is the entertainment capital of the world, it is important that we all remain vigilant and do everything we can to prevent incidents like this from occurring in our Communities.  Remember, IF YOU SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING.”

Even though there is no apparent connection between Los Angeles and the incident in Aurora, we will be increasing both uniformed presence and undercover surveillance at Movie Theaters and other venues where large crowds gather.  Crime prevention and Homeland security is everybody’s responsibility, if you see something say something, let’s keep our Community safe.

To report any suspicious activity you call 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (877-527-3247).  Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477). Tipsters may also contact Crime Stoppers by texting to phone number 274637 (C-R-I-M-E-S on most keypads) with a cell phone.  All text messages should begin with the letters “LAPD.”  Tipsters may also go to LAPDOnline.org, click on "webtips" and follow the prompts  Also you can report to www.iWATCHLA.org.

If you have an EMERGENCY, always call “911”
