LAFD memo describing dispatch database
This LAFD memo describes how the department’s dispatching database should be approached by analysts. It shows staff members struggling to explain the department’s own procedures.
“We need to come up with a listing of what to exclude!!!” the memo reads, in a section dedicated to spelling out which records to remove when analyzing dispatch data.
