Chief's Badge image Welcome to the Los Angles School Police Department’s (LASPD) website. We hope you find this site informative and useful. We are a progressive agency dedicated to serving the students, staff and families of LA Unified. 

Our mission for the LASPD is to provide our schools, students, teachers, administrators, staff and the school community with a safe learning and working environment. We are dedicated to providing facilities and asset protection spanning over 710 square miles of the second largest school district in the nation.

Our goal is to build upon the accomplishments of our past, to incorporate the feedback from our stakeholders and to refine our department in a manner that will help us build stronger relationships and keep our schools safe. 

During these challenging times, we will continue to serve with strong ethics and compassion. Additionally, we will continue to work closely with the numerous law enforcement organizations and municipalities located throughout LAUSD’s sphere of operations.

The men and women of the Los Angeles School Police Department remain committed to making LA Unified a safe District for people of all ages to work, learn and reach their individual potential.
