Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck said Monday his department has begun a review of equipment and checkout procedures as part of a larger examination of the department’s youth mentorship program after three teenage police cadets were arrested in connection with stealing at least two police cruisers.
“We’re doing a top-to-bottom review of our equipment checkout procedures, which are much advanced over what they have been in the past,” Beck told reporters downtown. “But obviously, either through inappropriate application or design flaws, (they were) too accessible from the outside. So we’re going to look at that.”
Beck last week called for an examination of the department’s mentorship program after cadets were accused of posing as police officers to get access to the cruisers, leading authorities on pursuits and later crashing Wednesday night in South Los Angeles.
What a loser.
