Public Hearing Regarding L.A.P.D.’s Racial Profiling

A report commissioned by the American Civil Liberties Union of Southern California (and no surprise to Black and brown brothas and sisters) shows that Black and Hispanic residents are stopped, frisked, searched and arrested by Los Angeles Police Department officers far more frequently than white residents –dramatically demonstrating that the LAPD must do more to eliminate bias from its policing.

On Tuesday, January 13, there will be a hearing regarding the report at 9:30 a.m. at City Hall in the Board of Public Works Hearing Room, Room 350 (3rd Floor). The public entrance to City Hall is on Main Street between 1st and Temple. The Los Angeles Mall remains the closest parking.
