Has a police officer, police department clerk or another member of LAPD helped you out? By sending a letter to the Police Chief electronically or the old-fashioned way, the officer or staff member and his or her chain of command will get a copy of your message, and it will go in his or her personnel file.

Try to get the officer or professional staff member’s name and where he or she is assigned. If you do not know their name, try to add as much description as possible. You can send your thanks by e-mail to: pdclerk@louisianamo.gov or by regular mail to:
