Today, LAPD Officer Richard Medina ran 24 miles in full uniform, from Downtown LA to the spot in San Pedro where his partner, Officer Roberto Sanchez, was killed 5 years ago in the line of duty. A fitting tribute for a man we will never forget.
We all have different opinions, different causes, different beliefs — and that’s what gives this city its character. Our commitment to all of you is to help facilitate the lawful expression of your voice.
You’ll notice LAPD Officers often patrol with their windows rolled down. It’s so they can hear what’s going on in the neighborhood. The Department employs that same philosophy every time a CPAB meeting is called to order. Because any good partnership begins with mutual understanding and an open ear.

Around 11 PM last night LAPD Southeast Area Officers responded to a call of a man with gun in the area of 113th St. & Wilmington Ave. in South LA. When officers arrived, they encountered the suspect who was armed with a firearm and fired at officers. Preliminary, it appears he struck their vehicle, and at that time there was an officer-involved shooting. The suspect moved from where the first officer-involved shooting occurred, still armed with the handgun, and a second officer-involved shooting occurred. The suspect, an adult male Hispanic, was struck by gunfire and pronounced deceased at scene, and the handgun he was armed with will be recovered by detectives. Fortunately, no officers were injured, but this is now the 3rd time in 10 days LAPD Officers have been shot at. 📸@cbsla
Husbands and wives. Sons and daughters. Brothers and sisters — these are some of the men and women preparing to go out and patrol the @metrolosangeles bus & rail system. It happens 365 days per year, day & night, rain or shine.
One of our young community members with an artistic rendition of K9 Rylee...we think she nailed it and Rylee agrees.
Officer: “What kind of arm you got?” Kid: 🥎🚀
LAPD is a city with heart—Mr. Delgado has lived in the @lapd_hollenbeck community for 40 years, and in the mornings he gets his rake & helps clean up the neighborhood around the station. A small token of appreciation, but he’s now the proud owner of an official Hollenbeck t-shirt.
