Los Angeles Police Department Chief Michel Moore joins Larry Mantle for his check-in on AirTalk. Topics we’re discussing include:
- Activists called on the LAPD to stop using a predictive policing program, arguing that the data was biased. Chief Moore said that changes would be made to the program.
- As records of certain problematic officers start being released thanks to SB 1421, how is the LAPD dealing with requests? What has come to light thus far?
- LAPD has ramped up protections of local mosques after the shooting in New Zealand. Meanwhile, it’s also holding active shooter response drills.
- California is attracting retail robbers. Some say that’s because our penalties are more lax than those from other states, but a new state law is aiming to address the issue.
- The teachers strike is one of the events that has forced LAPD to exceed its overtime budget. Plus, radio calls are on the rise.
- The agency turned 150 years old this year. We take a look back at the LAPD’s history.
