The Los Angeles Patrol Companies
LA Police Patrols is the first line of defense for the community in the event of an attack or burglary. They are on duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and they have full access to all of the resources of the LAP in the form of vehicles, tactical gear, and more. Each Los Angeles patrol cop carries with him a handgun, a baton, a TASER device, a duty belt, a back-up stun gun, a laptop computer, and a radio. There are also a handful of motorcycles on hand in case of an emergency.
The goal of the LA Police Patrol is to provide a safe haven for the public while simultaneously maintaining order and security within the communities they serve. They have been called the “guards of peace” and their duties include protecting the neighborhoods, the people in them, the businesses in them, and everything else in between. As officers put together their own tactical teams in order to respond to the threats and problems in the neighborhoods, the patrol cops are responsible for providing the leadership that is necessary to ensure that the area remains safe and stable. They are the backbone of the Los Angeles Police Department and have the responsibility to keep the peace in the community.
