Overview and Mission Statement of the ITD

Mission Statement

The mission of Information Technology Division (ITD) is to optimize the Department's ability to protect and serve the inhabitants of Los Angeles through the efficient and innovative use of the most advanced Information Technology (IT) available. Responsibilities include planning, developing, implementing, and supporting the IT systems and networks throughout LAPD.


Information Technology Division (ITD) is responsible for meeting present and future challenges of information technology, and developing, delivering and supporting technology throughout the Department. ITD is also responsible for critical technological development, systems modification, network enhancement and operational support to ensure expenditures and resources are fully utilized.

When ITD was established, it had a staff of 160 employees. As a result of reduced staffing, ITD now has a staff of 90, and far greater resources to manage. With the exception of Mobile Data communications (see Emergency Command Control Communications System Division) and TEAMS II (see TEAMS II Development), ITD is responsible for all IT initiatives, computer systems, and network support Department-wide. The Commanding Officer of ITD is Director of Systems Jeffrey M. Jantz.
