  Los Angeles Police Department - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In 1997 Williams was replaced by Bernard Parks, during whose term the LAPD was rocked by the Rampart Division/CRASH corruption scandal.
In 1997 one of the biggest challenges for the LAPD and LAPD SWAT was the North Hollywood shootout.
As of 2002, 16.5% of the LAPD is African American, 34.2% is Latino, and 6.9% is Asian or Pacific Islander.

 SignOnSanDiego.com > News > State -- LAX, LAPD clash on security staffing needs at the airport
At the same time, the LAPD has scrambled to plug staffing shortages in other parts of the city – a quest that led the department to shift 32 officers from the Harbor Division last fall in a move that angered local residents.
LAPD officials defend the beefed-up airport deployment, noting that LAX is viewed as California's top terror target and that it has been the site of foiled and actual terror attacks, including the deadly July 4, 2002, shootings at the Tom Bradley International Terminal.
The controversy surrounding the LAPD's airport deployment flared at a time when the department is so short-staffed that the two Los Angeles mayoral candidates – incumbent Hahn and Councilman Antonio Villaraigosa – are testing the bounds of creativity in developing plans to add just 90 police officers to the 9,200-member force.

LAPD is not an advanced Dept. I remember in 1987 LAPD still had 38 caliber wheel guns (revolvers.) While other agencies had already transitioned to Semi-autos with advanced ammunition, a decade prior.
LAPD went to hollow points and semi autos a decade later than other agencies, and "it made the news" as if it were new.
LAPD is finally learning now "maybe we can learn from others." The issue of equipment is not a big concern of mine, because that’s not the most important.

Official Negligence: How Rodney King and the Riots Changed Los Angeles and the LAPD by Lou Cannon Washington Post journalist Cannon believes 4 LAPD officers prosecuted in 1992 for beating fl motorist Rodney King "were scapegoats for the LA's riots" that followed the verdicts in their first trial.

 LAPD_notice
Specifically, the LAPD has failed to implement a comprehensive risk management system to identify patterns of at-risk conduct by individual officers and groups of officers, such as patterns of uses of force, injury to citizens, and citizen complaints.
In addition, the LAPD fails to respond properly to citizen complaints of officer misconduct in that it conducts inadequate investigations and adjudications of civilian complaints.
Indeed, the LAPD has been aware, at least since the 1991 Report of the Independent Commission on the Los Angeles Police Department (the Christopher Commission Report), that its management practices were inadequate to appropriately identify and prevent misconduct by its officers.

 The Black Commentator - The Miller Beating and LAPD's Culture Of Abuse - Issue 97
The beating of Stanley Miller, lying prone with hands behinds his back and two officers sitting on him while a third officer kicks him in the head and whacks him over the head and neck area eleven times, was a spontaneous reaction to which the officer gave little thought or analysis.
The “new LAPD” is a public relations stunt and as Bratton did his PR concert around “the fl leadership tour,” it became obvious that even he underestimated the level of distrust the fl community had for LAPD.
The real reality to LAPD is we've spent so much time trying to “kill the head,” in changing the chief every five years, that we haven't done very much to “kill the body,” the body of abuse deep inside the culture.

Often, it is getting the sons and daughters of current LAPD officers who are dissuading their children from working with the LAPD.
Feldman: The number of officers, according to an L.A. city councilman, the number of LAPD officers who are either retiring or leaving the department to go elsewhere is now approximately double the rate of the new recruits that successfully complete the academy.
