The Los Angeles Police Department and Chief Charlie Beck join the rest of the nation in mourning the senseless loss of so many innocent lives. These mass shootings are becoming all too common in our schools across the nation, and they tear at the fabric of our communities. This is why it is so important that anytime anyone observes concerning behavior or potential criminal acts, they notify authorities as soon as possible. At this time, there are no known threats to Los Angeles area schools or any connection to Florida’s shooting. However, in order to ease the nerves of worried parents and comfort students, you can expect to see a continued police presence in the area of our schools. As always, the LAPD is committed to keeping all of our citizens safe. Remember, if you see something, say something.
