Written by Senior Lead Officer Charles Thomas Wilshire Division
The Senior Lead Officer is an officer in charge of a designated area within the police station's borders. Senior Lead Officers (SLO) provide a link that unites the LAPD station with the various neighborhoods it serves. They are responsible for monitoring crime trends in basic car areas, working with Community-Police Advisory Boards, also known as C-PAB, and acting as a liaison with detectives to stay informed of crime trends and special problems within their area. They often appear at neighborhood meetings to keep neighbors informed about issues impacting their communities and address issues that concern neighbors. To find the Senior Lead Officer for your neighborhood contact Wilshire Division 213.473.0476 or Olympic Division 213.382.9102.
