Released in its Thin Blue Line newsletter, a summer study conducted by the Los Angeles Police Protective League found that nearly 9 out of 10 LAPD officers did not feel supported by Chief Michel Moore and did not believe he or other commanders provided strong leadership during recent protests and unrest.

According to an article in the Los Angeles Times, more than 2,700 of the department’s 10,000-plus sworn members participated in the survey. Many denounced LAPD Chief Michel Moore’s lack of organization during protests and said he should resign in the study’s comments.

We check in with the president of the Protective League, Lieutenant Craig Lally, on the survey’s findings and what this indicates about the future of the department. Questions or comments? Call us at 866-893-5722.

Chief Michel Moore was asked to join the segment but was in a police commission meeting while the show aired.
