LAPD brings foot patrols back to Chinatown

CHINATOWN, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- The Los Angeles Police Department is launching a new foot patrol program in Chinatown, the first in the area in about a decade.

The patrols have been brought back to get officers into the community and allow them to get to know its residents.

Two officers will be permanently assigned to walk Chinatown on a daily basis. Community beat patrols have been brought back in several other Los Angeles communities, including Boyle Heights.

Reporter Leo Stallworth has the details in the video above.
