(from a letter written July 17, 2002)

An open invitation from to the LAPD Command Staff

Dear LAPD Command Staff:

This is an open invitation to those of you who may not be familiar with the work of Los Angeles Community Policing to visit our website.

We wish to assure you that our commitment is to be issue driven, fair and inclusive, and we invite your active participation.

We want you to think of as YOUR site ... because it is.

The response from the community, the Department and the City has been extremely enthusiastic. Many of you in the Command Staff have already expressed your appreciation and support ... and for this we are very grateful.

We are a forum for the dissemination of information, the sharing of ideas, and suggesting of ways the community can become engaged in making our streets safer, to improve the quality of life.

Anyone interested in community based policing specifically, and community involvement in government in general, should think of as their site.

You may find the newly launched, interactive, online LA Community Policing calendar of particular interest. Feel free to add events ...

If you've not been aware of LA Community Policing, please accept this invitation, and take a few moments to familiarize yourself with the website.

It's YOUR site too, as an important stakeholder in the City of Los Angeles.

Yours in service,

Bill Murray
