Open enrollment for LAPPL insurance benefits extended (Active Members Only)

A skewed sense of priorities: Plans scrapped for Northeast Area parking lot/structure
The citizens of Los Angeles expect a first-rate law enforcement Department, and to meet those justifiable expectations it is extremely important that the LAPD have up-to-date facilities for our officers.
