The Los Angeles Police Department is under no statutory obligation to provide or maintain its own jail system but does so because of the vital support and assistance it renders both to the community and to the various law enforcement agencies it services. Jail Division’s primary and ongoing mission is to discharge its legal duties and responsibilities promptly and efficiently, and in such a manner as to ensure that all individuals are accorded professional and dignified treatment.

Chief Bratton will be conducting a uniform inspection of the officers assigned to Metro Jail Division. This is a yearly inspection involving all personnel in the division.

Media personnel will be allowed to film Chief Bratton as he inspects the officers.
