“I am honored that after a thorough evaluation of my work as Chief of Police and the many accomplishments of the Department over the past five years, the Police Commission has given me the opportunity to continue the important work of keeping Los Angeles safe,” said Chief Charlie Beck.
“I am immensely proud to lead the men and women of the LAPD who work tirelessly every day to earn the trust of our communities and who risk their lives to protect those that live, work and visit the City of Angels.
The dedicated sworn officers and civilian personnel of the Department perform this mission effectively, constitutionally, and with the professionalism that the community expects. I thank the Mayor, the Police Commission, the men and women of the LAPD, and the community for supporting me through this process and their vote of confidence in my continued leadership of the finest police department in the world.”
