Chief Beck will also address the potential expansion of a high-tech system used to locate shooters, as well as Metro’s new security plan which shifts a portion of security responsibility to the LAPD.

Other recent developments include L.A. lawmakers asking LAPD to put more officers on the city streets, the shooting and killing of a Whittier officer, the expansion of the Community Safety Partnership Program and more.
