Help us help you ...
your participation is what it's all about
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ - it's YOUR site

We've had virtually nothing but a positive response about our LA Community Policing website, and have begun to receive invitations to visit a variety of community meetings, including C-PAB meetings, to talk about it.

As time goes on, we'll be happy to visit them all, as well as neighborhood "community government" group empowerment meetings, because we're trying to let all of you know that is YOUR site, not ours.

It will become whatever you in the community make of it.

Now we need your help ... support us as we empower Angelenos to participate in making their neighborhood streets safer ... 

Write an article ... or a letter

We encourage you to write us an article concerning community policing issues. We want Los Angeles Community Policing to begin to reflect other voices, other views.

There are many places on the site to do this already. You can send us a "Letter to the Editor" or join the "LA Community Policing e-group". And for the C-PABs and SLOs specifically, areas for your contributions are broken out by LAPD Division.

So all we need at this point is to begin getting more of your outside input.

LA Community Policing - Confidentiality

We understand the need for confidentiality very well, and we'll never use any community members' names, phone numbers, email addresses or any other personal information without first obtaining their expressed permission.

At we know this should always be voluntary.

The email list we are compiling for our outreach will remain private and will not be shared. People will be added or removed promptly and it will be used solely for the promotion of community based policing.

This began as a simple attempt to form contacts between the LAPD C-PABs across the City, but it's become much more than that.

The overwhelmingly positive response confirms to us that across the City this service fulfills an important need, and so now it's become a full time commitment.

LA Community Policing - Outreach

As we've said, there's been an incredible response to this site.

But so far, we've created the simple email list we're using for our outreach from scratch ... and from our own resources.

Any suggestions you may have as to how we could let more potentially interested Angelinos know of our Los Angeles Community Policing forum is appreciated.

Perhaps there are some email group lists for your area of the City that could be useful ...

Perhaps there are some of you who know of community websites to which we could be linked ...

If you know of anything you think would help, or have any ideas that can assist us in doing our outreach, please write to us here:

In the meantime, we've added a way for individual visitors to the website who are not currently on the contact list to ask to be added:

Note: This list will not be shared with any other group, nor will it be used for purposes other than promoting Los Angeles Community Policing.

Once again, we appreciate your many kind words of encouragement, and ask your continued help with outreach for Los Angeles Community Policing.

Yours in service,

Bill Murray
