Next month, the LAPD plans to focus on larger crime areas leaving tony Westside communities with less officers, which in theory means slower response times and decreased regular patrol. The public's pissed and as with all things with Westside City Councilmember Bill Rosendahl, the next step is a community presentation and panel. He's bringing Chief Bratton and other LAPD top brass to explain their decision. Then Rosendahl will moderate questions from the audience. If you go, here's the information:
