At least 200 LAPD officers are assisting in the "unified command" to combat the Sayre Fire, as Mayor Villaraigosa detailed in a press conference this morning. Although there have been some initial concerns raised about the strain on the City's police forces, Villaraigosa and other officials are assuring Angelenos that the LAPD are able to handle the demand on personnel needed to help with the fire, as well as to control the crowds expected to take to the streets today as part of a large-scale nationwide protest against the passing of Proposition 8. Today's protest in Los Angeles will be at City Hall and is due to begin at 10:30 a.m.
