LAPD pledges support for Special Order 40

Thursday, January 27, 2011

Special Order 40 prevents Los Angeles police from stopping and questioning people to investigate their immigration status.

LAPD Chief Charlie Beck held a news conference with the consulate generals of Mexico and five other nations.

Beck wants to assure immigrants they won't be targeted solely because of their legal status.

The department has produced six public service announcements to get the word out.
