Over Policing by the LAPD

I’d like to know average officer staffing per capita. That is # of policemen per citizens in the “downtown ” and “metropolitan” areas of Los Angeles PD.

Thank you for your help obtaining these figures.

    Dear Sunshine Request:


    We have received the following information from the LAPD Personnel Division:


    As of 7/2/18, there were 394 sworn assigned to Central Area and of that, 313 are police officers. We do not track staffing per capita.


    We hope this information will be of assistance to you. Please contact us if you have any questions.

    City of Los Angeles Public Records
    A message was sent to you regarding record request #18-1417:


    Dear Requester:


    I have reviewed your California Public Records Act request.


    Please be advised that, pursuant to California Government Code Section 6253(c), I have found that “unusual circumstances” exist with respect to the request due to the need to search for, collect, and review the requested records from other Department entities which are separate from the office processing the request. Therefore, my staff will require the statutory fourteen days extension of time in which to respond. A determination concerning your request will be made as soon as possible.


    If you have any questions regarding this correspondence, simply respond to this email.


    Very Truly Yours,


    LAPD Discovery Section CPRA Unit

    **Editor’s Note: We submitted this request to the City of Los Angeles through their public records request portal at the following link: https://recordsrequest.lacity.org/


    Hello City of Los Angeles,


    I work for a website called Sunshine Request www.sunshinerequest.com. We built a site that makes it easier to make public records requests by filling out a simple form, and the results of any requests are posted on our site. This allows citizens to learn more about local government, while saving staff from having to fulfill duplicate requests. If you have any questions about the project, please let me know, and I’ll be happy to answer.


    We recently received a request for information that may be available in your office. If a cost will be associated with this request, can you please let us know an estimate?


    Here are the details sent by the requester:
