Hollenbeck Officer Contreras can teach you a couple of things when it comes to swimming. He attended Stevenson Middle School and then Roosevelt High School. He participated in football and swimming and still holds the record for the 50 yard freestyle since 1984! He went onto UCLA and is now working in the neighborhood he grew up in.
They’re being hailed as heroes for going into a burning home last night to rescue an unconscious man. If you ask them, they will probably say they were just doing their job. Officers, we must disagree. You are true heroes, and we are sure others will agree with us
We have to give credit to @drewmaddux45 for his record breaking trick shot...but our very own @trickshotcop decided to give him a run for his money. Ladies and gentlemen, we present you the new world record! 95 foot backwards shot! @espn @sportscenter @harlemglobetrotters
While some of us were complaining of the nearly 100 degree heat, @losangelesfiredepartment firefighters were out there battling a brush fire in the Griffith Park area. Can you imagine the conditions they were dealing with? On behalf of all Angelenos, thank you for your brave work out there 👍 📸 @kholmeslive
@lapdjohn has 2 weeks to go before entering retirement but that's not slowing him down. He recently took a ride with our Off Road Unit https://t.co/9w1PkObWUY. May you have many more memorable rides during your retirement Chief.
We love patrolling the streets of Los Angeles, but once in awhile we take our patrols underwater — well, not all of us get to do that, only our highly trained @lapd.swat divers
What happened when our @lapdnewtoncsp officers took a short break from the heat and stopped to visit one of the cooling centers? They were treated to a quick knitting lesson under the watchful eye of these sweet ladies. We love the focus but we think he’s sticking to his day job!
Two of the many #LAPD traditions: class chant and hat toss. Congrats to the men and women of Class 1-18 on being our newest officers! Make us proud!
Protecting our streets from armed criminal gang members is a fight we must all be partnered in. Today, we announced a joint taskforce with @ATFHQ that resulted in more than 45 firearms being removed off the streets and 10 arrests
