Background on Data-Informed, Community-Focused Policing. Data-Informed, Community-Focused Policing means that police officers will prioritize working with people to build trust, using information that’s accurate and fair, and focusing on solving crime problems in specific places. Importantly, officers will increase their assistance to crime victims and those who are most at risk of becoming victims.Based on input from the public, the Board of Police Commissioners (BOPC), the Mayor’s Office and the Chief of Police, the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD or Department) is embarking on major improvements to better balance trust and public safety. This change will involve the development of more precise actions and measures based on research and evaluation. It will involve working closely with the community to identify problems, solve them, and assess our success. Get a copy of the publication HERE
