LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles City Council’s Public Safety Committee is hearing a motion Tuesday filed by several councilmembers asking the Los Angeles Police Department to provide reports on how decisions were made about the size, timing and methodology of the LAPD’s deployment actions leading up to and during the recent protests at USC and UCLA.

This is the first approval step in the motion's process, which ultimately looks for the LAPD to provide recommendations for any lessons learned and/or protocol changes for improvement in departmental policy. 

The motion was co-presented by Councilmembers Nithya Raman, Katy Yaroslavsky, Curren Price and Marqueece Harris-Dawson, and seconded by Councilmembers Hugo Soto-Martinez and Eunisses Hernandez.
