(Los Angeles, California – June 6, 2016) It was a day like any other as Airport Police K-9 Officer Havon McLeod made his way to work.  Driving through the typically busy, Los Angeles afternoon freeway traffic, McLeod noticed cars ahead of him suddenly changing lanes and slowing down as they passed what the K-9 Officer initially thought was a broken down vehicle or traffic accident in the middle of the freeway.  
(Los Angeles, California – June 2, 2016)  The quick response of Airport Police, and the Los Angeles Airport Police Division’s (APD) layered security strategy, stops a murder suspect from being able to breach the Los Angeles International (LAX) perimeter fence and escape.    Around 7:40 p.m., June 1, 2016, Los Angeles Airport Police responded to a call from an airport contract employee of a man who had pointed a handgun at him at Avion Drive and International Road.
