TWO NEW OFFICERS SWORN IN AS AIRPORT POLICE

(Los Angeles, California – September 1, 2017) In a ceremony held at the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) Elysian Park Academy, Los Angeles Airport Police Chief David L. Maggard Jr. swore in two new officers as members of the Nation’s largest aviation law enforcement agency.

Officer Teresa Arizaga, Vice President of LAPD Academy Class 3-17, a former Airport Police Security Officer and LAPD detention officer along with classmate, Officer Phil Park, represented the Airport Police Division in the thirty-five member six month academy. Officer Park who left a career in information technology to proudly serve the community, was presented with the LAPD Tina Kerbrat Award for most inspirational recruit.

Before swearing in the new Airport Police Officers, Airport Police Chief Maggard said, “Exciting times are ahead for these new officers, their responsibilities will be great but their opportunities will be equal in size and scope.”

Officers Arizaga and Park will now begin a six-month Field Training Program specific to aviation law enforcement under the guidance of a field training officer before being assigned to the Patrol Services Section.

In addition to 550 sworn officers, Los Angeles Airport Police Division also employs 430 security officers and nearly 200 civilian professional staff. As the largest aviation law enforcement agency in the nation, Airport Police patrols and secures Los Angeles International Airport, the Nation’s second busiest and world’s fourth busiest airport, and VNY general aviation airport.
