Los Alamos Chief of Police Dino Sgambellone has released the 32-page 2017 Annual Report for LAPD, which can be viewed online on the Department webpage.
Chief Sgambellone said the annual report reflects LAPD’s commitment to those it serves through its ongoing efforts to maintain a safe community for residents and visitors.
“I am very proud of the men and women of the Department for their enduring professionalism and dedication,” Sgambellone said. “I thank this community for their ongoing support of the Department in what continues to be a challenging environment for law enforcement nationwide.”
Sgambellone said a considerable amount of resources were directed last year to preparing for national accreditation through the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement (CALEA), which the Department received earlier this month with 100 percent compliance to 484 procedures.
The annual report reflects that property crime continues to decline as it has the last four years and that for the first time in six years, violent crime has risen from 17 incidents in 2016 to 25 in 2017.
Included in the report are descriptions of activities, qualifications and accomplishments within different sections of the Department as well as statistics on everything from investigations to calls processed by the Consolidated Dispatch Center.
