Please join us for this important presentation by the Los Angeles Port Police. In an era when senseless killing seems to be far too common, the question is, "if you are the victim of an Active Shooter, will you know what to do? Sergeant Alvarez will walk us through the steps to follow if you are involved in an active shooter situation: Run, Hide, Fight. He will also discuss what informaton to provide to 911 operators if you are calling for assistance, and what to do when law enforcement arrives at the scene.
The Los Angeles Port Police (LAPP) is a specialized law enforcement agency at the Port of Los Angeles, under the control of the Los Angeles Harbor Department (WorldPort LA) and the City of Los Angeles. They are one of the few agencies in the nation that has a dedicated 24-hour marine unit. They have officers on boats 24 hours a day 7 days a week, and they are one of the few U.S. police forces dedicated exclusively to port activities. Los Angeles Port Police officers are sworn California Peace Officers and have the same rights and abilities as any other law enforcement officer. All port police officers respond to general calls for service, including domestic violence issues, and commercial burglary calls.
