Women’s Leadership Conference
The Police Foundation funded this one-day leadership conference that included guest panel speakers who encourage the development of leadership capabilities for female employees of the Department. This year’s Women’s Leadership Conference celebrated its 10th Anniversary drawing over 1,100 Department employees, marking LAPD’s commitment to ensuring that women are represented throughout all ranks and assignments.

Northwestern University Academy Training Analysis
The Police Foundation funded a study conducted by Northwestern University to assess the effectiveness of the physical fitness and academic portions of police academy training in order to recommend changes that will improve recruitment and standards for entry level candidates.
The most comprehensive assessment ever conducted of a police department assessed a dramatic increase in public satisfaction with the LAPD in the quantity and quality of enforcement activity, as well as community engagement.
