STATEMENT: Mayor Garcetti on National Police Week 2017

“Every single day, in Los Angeles and cities throughout the world, the women and men of law enforcement fulfill an oath to uphold justice — and live a promise to risk everything to keep our families safe and our communities secure. Two hundred and eight LAPD officers have given their lives in service to the people of our city, and I am grateful that National Police Week gives us a moment to honor their courage and reflect on the sacrifices that officers make for all of us.” — Mayor Eric Garcetti
