Commend Police Department for Prioritizing Animal Safety


Target: Charlie Beck, Los Angeles Police Department Chief of Police

Goal: Thank the police department for its dedication to the well-being of animals

The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) recently announced its goal of being known as “The City of Compassion.” The police department believes that its motto of “to protect and serve” should apply to humans and animals alike. This is an important step for the iconic city of Los Angeles: residents now have more reason to trust in the protection and dedication of the LAPD.

The LAPD has been on the lookout for animals in need. Its recent services for animals include saving a cat that was running through traffic, rescuing an abused donkey and returning a kidnapped dog to its rightful owners. The LAPD Chief of Police understands that a main priority for any police station should be to gain the trust of its citizens. A love for animals is a feeling that many people share: a police station that publicly dedicates itself to protecting and serving animals is on the right track to gain trust and support from the community it serves.

While the LAPD may not be a perfect operation, the team of police officers is actively trying to be more present for their community. All of the police department’s efforts will be documented annually in a calendar created by Voice for Animals, a local organization dedicated to financially supporting animals in need. The LAPD is organizing to watch out for the future of animals; what will be its next victory? Is there a team-wide lifestyle change to vegetarianism on the horizon? One can hope. For now, the LAPD is on the right track.


Dear Chief of Police Charlie Beck,

The LAPD recently made headlines with its announcement that it will prioritize the safety and security of the city’s animals. This enhanced dedication will help secure a promising future for people, as well as the animals that they love. Thank you for understanding that a love for animals unites thousands, and for fostering this initiative.

The LAPD vows to be known as “The City of Compassion.” This is an attainable goal for your organization because it is beginning to focus on all aspects of compassion, which includes a love for animals. A firefighting team in Texas adopted veganism; will the LAPD be the next city service team that adopts this level of health and compassion?

The country is watching, and you are on the right track. Thank you.

  1. Animal protection should have always been a priority, non human animals have no defenses against humans, they need protection thank you for giving it to them. Make sure your police force are aware of this so they stop shooting innocent dogs.

    I think that the smartest, most compassionate person realizes that there is no difference in what humans do to animals and what humans do to each other, especially the those unable to adequately fight back. same impulse; different species. mutilate, burn, hang, crate, sexually abuse, starve. you read it each day : child found mutilated, baby left in box in trash, puppies found in plastic bag in dumpster, kitten thrown from car, neonate hanged by boyfriend to teach girlfriend a lesson, horse burned for fun, baby burned by cigarettes, goats found dead from starvation on farm. Same impulse, Different species. thank you, LAPD. you know that one bad impulse, unchecked, leads to another.

  3. IF this is true then I certainly thank the LAPD. I just have a difficult time in believing it. Three cheers if it is true.

  4. Thank you to the police department for your compassion towards all animals. Without your help there would be greater abuse on animals and more dead animals. You guys are counteracting the cruelty against animals and I applaud you for your hard work. Animal abuse will forever remain but as long as we, you intervene it is a step to saving and generating a life of hope for animals. For every abuse against animals we can take a step and make a dent in what has happened.


  6. Thank you LAPD, you are a leader and we all thank you.
