It’s time for Ask the Chief, your monthly opportunity to put your law and order questions to top cop Chief Charlie Beck. Patt gets the latest on several internal LAPD investigations, including whether members of its SWAT unit took advantage of their positions to buy and then resell specially-made handguns. Chief Beck will also speak about the investigation into the use of overly-harsh physical methods by officers at a ‘military-style’ boot camp for youth and what the LAPD has done in to beef up public security in the wake of the Aurora and Wisconsin shootings. Plus, your questions.
