Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck joins AirTalk today to talk with Larry about his plans to work with Mayor Garcetti to reduce  L.A.’s uptick in violent crime.  

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.

Call in with your questions for Chief Beck.
