LAPD Expands Community Policing Program, Appoints Black Female Deputy Chief

As part of a reimagining of law enforcement after the killing of George Floyd, the Los Angeles Police Department is expanding its signature community policing program. The Community Safety Partnership, which began in 2011 in some of the city’s most troubled housing developments, is credited with reducing violent crime and improving relationships with residents through initiatives such as youth football teams.

The expansion of CSP comes as other LAPD units are being closely scrutinized for potential cuts. Responding to days of street protests calling for resources to be shifted from policing to programs that help Black and Latino residents, the City Council recently slashed $150 million from the LAPD budget.

Proponents of CSP say its expansion will transform the culture of the 10,000-officer LAPD, where success has traditionally been measured by arrests and crime statistics. Now, building trust with local residents will be paramount, Chief Michel Moore said. CSP will now have its own bureau within the LAPD, headed by Emada Tingirides, a Watts native who was one of the program’s founding officers. She will become the LAPD’s second Black female deputy chief. - Los Angles Times

Police Commission
The Function and Role of the Board of Police Commissioners

Under the City Charter, the Board of Police Commissioners is the head of the Police Department. The Board sets overall policy while the Chief of Police manages the daily operations of the Department and implements the Board's policies or policy direction and goals.

The Board of Police Commissioners, originally created in the 1920's, is comprised of five civilians who donate their time to the City while maintaining their professional careers. They are appointed by the Mayor and confirmed by the City Council. The Commissioners serve a maximum of two five-year terms. The Commissioners routinely spend 25-50 hours per week on Commission business, and serve as the citizens' voice in police affairs and as a means of ensuring more responsive and effective City government.

The Commissioners' concerns are reflective of the community-at-large, and their priorities include implementing recommended reforms, improving service to the public by the Department, reducing crime and the fear of crime, and initiating, implementing and supporting community policing programs.

FEMA Supports COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution


In alignment with President Biden’s plan to respond to COVID-1, FEMA will work with other federal agencies to coordinate with state, tribal and territorial authorities and private sector partners and others to assist, augment and expedite vaccinations in the United States.

Key Message

  • FEMA continues to support vaccine distribution efforts, including the opening of the first Community Vaccination Center in California, while responding to the recent winter storms and urging individuals and families to prepare for additional winter weather.

    Acting FEMA Administrator Bob Fenton is attending the opening of the first Community Vaccination Center in California today -- at California State University in Los Angeles. The center is focusing on vaccinating underserved and historically marginalized communities. Another pilot Community Vaccination Center is also opening today in Oakland, California. Both centers are designed to administer up to 6,000 vaccines a day. FEMA is providing resources, operational and federal staffing support.

    FEMA has now obligated more than $3.38 billion to states, tribes and territories, and Washington, D.C., for community vaccination centers. As the number of states with obligations increases, we will work alongside other federal agencies to provide federal support for critical staffing, supplies and other shortfalls that can help get more people vaccinated.

Review CERT Roles for Qualifications by November 26

Community Emergency Respose Team
for CERT Roles
by Nov. 26


Calling everyone in the CERT community! You have an opportunity to provide feedback on CERT position descriptions. To ensure both volunteers and incident management staff are on the same page when called upon to support a disaster, FEMA has developed specific definitions and qualifications for three key positions: CERT Volunteer, CERT Section Chief, and CERT Team Leader.

One benefit of incorporating CERT positions into the NQS is that it will also add them to the new OneResponder tool. OneResponder is a free, web-based system that uses a uniform terminology and approach to certify emergency personnel. Task books can be accessed on OneResponder using your smartphone, tablet, and online. To learn more about OneResponder, please visit www.oneresponder.net.

The CERT program informs volunteers on the hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills. CERT offers a consistent, nationwide approach to volunteer training and organization. Professional first responders can rely on CERT volunteers during disaster situations, allowing them to focus on more complex tasks.
