We are still dealing with a large, and at times unruly, crowd in the Downtown L.A. area. There are several street closures and areas of heavy traffic congestion. Please stay clear of the DTLA area and expect a large police presence.

We’re seeing some large, at times unruly crowds, taking over intersections in various parts of the city. We urge all Angelenos to stay home if possible. If you must be out, please exercise caution. Should you encounter a large crowd, do not attempt to drive through it.

Many use Sundays to recharge before a new work week or connect with family & friends—but like many other essential professions, Sunday for us is just another day. We’ll be out today & everyday—working hard to protect & to serve—not because we have to, but because we want to.

If you’re going to show up to Hollywood and park in a red zone, with drugs, a rifle and ammo inside your car...odds are you will be arrested. Great job officers. Angelenos are safer because of your presence—and dedication to taking guns off the hands of criminals.

We can confirm the female suspect fired at officers, resulting in an Officer-Involved Shooting. As visible in these photographs, at least one round fired by the suspect appears to have struck the front hood of the officers patrol vehicle. Fortunately, no officers were injured.

The lines of tape on the ground may keep us all socially distant... -but- a good kids story will always do two things: help us connect and help us put smiles on faces (behind masks of course.)

When ofcrs received info that gang members were stockpiling guns, they took action. With the assistance of SWAT, a search warrant was served, numerous firearms were seized and 3 suspects arrested (two convicted felons). Without a doubt, these arrests saved lives.

The LAPD processes thousands of theft reports a year. Behind every report is a victim—and officers willing to take the extra step to solve the case. A stolen mobility scooter led to an arrest by officers, and detectives made sure the victim got his scooter back.
