Los Angeles is home to 4 million residents engaged in 24/7 activities within a 500-square mile area, which includes strategic gateways such as Los Angeles International Airport and the Port of Los Angeles. How do agencies such as the Los Angeles Police and Fire Departments serve Angelenos in keeping order and work together when a disaster or an emergency arises as the region as experiences mass shootings, wildfires or a terrorism threat?

How are LAPD and LAFD expanding and strengthening public-private partnerships? In an era of tight department budgets, what innovations support operational efficiency? How are both departments enhancing transparency and accountability to the public? Join Los Angeles Downtown News Editor Jon Regardie as he asks these questions to Chiefs Moore and Terrazas.

Chief Michel R. Moore is a 36-year veteran of the Los Angeles Police Department. Chief Moore rose through the ranks of police officer, detective, sergeant, and lieutenant working various patrol, investigative, and administrative assignments throughout the City. Chief Moore strives to promote a community policing style of leadership that stresses intelligent, partnership-oriented strategies involving community stakeholders, as well as various members of the criminal justice system.

Chief Ralph M. Terrazas is a 31-year veteran of the LAFD and is the 18th Fire Chief of the LAFD. During his tenure, he has served as a chief officer for 14 years in a variety of field and administrative commands. He established the Department’s Professional Standards Division (PSD), which upgraded and professionalized the LAFD’s disciplinary system. He is the holder of a U.S. Patent for a “Brush Fire Rate of Spread” tool and an Emmy Award of Excellence for production of a public service announcement program.
