Prom season and high school graduations are approaching, and so is that time of year when teen parties far too frequently result in tragedy. Our LAPD Valley Traffic Div presented the Every 15 Minutes program to students in the San Fernando Valley. Students witnessed the staged wreckage of a DUI crash, saw “bloodied” classmates pulled from the tangled mess and watched as paramedics whiskedfriends to a trauma center. The goal of this shock-value presentation is prevention – getting young people to think before they drink and to truly visualize the consequences of poor choices #DontDrinkAndDrive
We saw it all at today’s #LAMarathon. From #runners crossing in front of #LosAngeles City Hall, #kids cheering on their daddy, #superheroes, even #dinosaurs! But most importantly, we saw our city unite to welcome runners from all over the world. Proud day for everyone!
Need any good book recommendations? With undergrad and graduate degrees in English Literature, #LAPD Officer Borihanh can probably recommend a few! When he’s not reading Plato, Officer Borihanh also loves spending time at his home in #Hawaii connecting with his roots. #chooseyourfuture #joinLAPD
These two “volunteers” are having a great time this #SundayMorning making sure the #LAMarathon runners are heading in the right direction. Hey @ladotofficial, you might have some competition! 🎥 @twinjas_official
Turn up the volume on this video and enjoy the sounds of children laughing. Thank you @jesserey_ for showing the human side of policing #lapd #police #cops #kids #motorcycle
The journey may appear never ending, but the finish line draws closer with every stride. Good luck to all law enforcement personnel competing in this weekend’s #BakertoVegas Relay Race. #B2V
You forgot your driver’s license at home?? Hahaha...we’ve heard that one before!! Actually, our @lapd_hollenbeck officers met this young boy & his doggie during our “Roll Call In The Streets” and made sure he got a free book 👮♂️🐶👦📚
You might have heard of “Zuma”, he’s the @nbcla #PuppyWithAPurpose. Through @americasvetdogs, he’s being trained as a service #dog for #veterans & #firstresponders. #LAPD Officer Canizales got the opportunity to meet this good boy 👮♂️🐶👍 #TodayPuppySquad
The world is always watching #LAPD. Today, loved and cherished ones watch Recruit Class 10A-2017 graduate and join the ranks of the finest police officers in the world, the Los Angeles Police Department.
