October is breast cancer awareness month. Each of us has been affected in one way or another by some form of cancer. For the past 3 years the Airport Police have joined forces with allied agencies all over the Country as part of the Pink Patch Project.

Over the past two years we have see the PPP members grow from 84 in 2016 to over 260 last year. We are proud of our involvement in this worthy cause and authorize our officers to wear this years patches as a sign of support from now through November 15th.

Officer Heard was voted as class treasurer and was responsible for accounting for class dues and expenditures.

(Los Angeles, California – June 12, 2018) Early this morning the Los Angeles Airport Police deployed narcan (generic Naloxone) nasal spray to save man overdosing on heroin. While patroling the area of La Cienega Blvd and Century Blvd, officers were flagged down by a citizen calling for help for an unconscious man suffering from an apparent heroin overdose. Airport Police Officers Richard Flores and William Garcia conducted an assesment and administered the narcan nasal spray to the victim who shortly regained consciousness and was transported to a local hospital for medical treatment. This was the first time Airport Police used the nasal spray to save a victim from an opioid overdose. The deployment of narcan by Airport Police began less than 45 days ago through a partnership with the Los Angeles Fire Department. Since the partnership was implemented, LAFD has facilitated the training and distribution of Narcan (generic Naloxone) to nearly 400 Airport Police officers. "The opioid epidemic is one of the most challenging and dangerous issues we face as a society, our officers having the ability to administer narcan is instrumental in our mission to protect the public and save lives ," said Chief of Airport Police David L. Maggard Jr, "I'm grateful for our partnership with LAFD and proud of Officer Richard Flores and Officer William Garcia for their immediate actions and quick thinking in saving a mans life."
