SLOs Fast to the Task in Northeast L.A.

Last Wednesday, I joined community members and LAPD officers at the LAPD Northeast Senior Lead Officer Summit that took place at the Dodger Stadium Club. About 100 people attended from all sections of the Northeast. I am thankful that Senior Lead Officers Mark Allen from Highland Park, Craig Orange from Eagle Rock, Nina Perciado from Highland Park/Mt. Washington and Sgt. Danny Roman provide such outstanding service to Council District 14. These SLOs really do put a face to the department. Their efforts in creating a trusting and collaborative environment in fighting crime make us all safer. Northeast Division Commanding Officer, Captain Bill Murphy provided a great overview of the department and his commitment to public safety is demonstrated in his leadership.
