LAPD Appoints First African-American Female to Deputy Chief

The Los Angeles Police Department announced a historic move Thursday after promoting the first African-American female to deputy chief.

Regina Scott, a New Jersey native who once served in the United States Army, was appointed to the rank of deputy chief after 31 years with the department.

With her promotion comes the responsibility of taking command of LAPD’s Central Bureau, which oversees six police stations and is home to 900,000 residents over 65 square miles, according to a police news release.

I am both honored and humbled by this historic promotion,” Scott said in the news release. “This promotion is more than just me, it is for those who paved the road before me, and those who dare to dream big.

Scott joined LAPD in 1987 and has worked in various positions on several assignments for different police bureaus, the department said.

Scott was also the first African-American female in LAPD history to achieve the rank of commander when she was promoted in 2011.

In her role as commanding officer of the Information Technology Bureau, she was tasked with developing the department’s automated computer systems.

“Regina embodies the spirit of the Los Angeles Police Department with a balance of determination, excellence and heart,” LAPD Chief Michel Moore said in the release. “In her new role as Deputy Chief, she will undoubtedly continue that quality work with an emphasis on building bridges, creating healthy communities and fighting crime.”

The Weingart Center, a downtown-based social service agency for the homeless with plans to build the largest supportive housing project in Los Angeles, has named Warren Loui as chairman of the board.

Los Angeles Kicks Off 2018 Youth Jobs Program

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti launched a nearly $6 million youth employment program expected to match tens of thousands of young people with summer and year-round jobs.

The HIRE LA’s Youth program began July 9 to provide job opportunities youths between the ages of 14 and 24. They have until July 31 to apply for jobs in industries that range from entertainment to financial services.

“An open door to a job is life-changing for any young person, especially those who’ve faced economic and social challenges,” Garcetti said in a statement. “HIRE LA’s Youth offers local teens and young adults the chance to earn a paycheck and meet industry leaders, which is an investment in both their lives and our city’s future.”

The Hire LA’s Youth program, begun in 2015, was made possible by $5.8 million in funds from the city’s general fund and by Measure H, a quarter-cent sales tax increase approved by county voters in 2017 to combat homelessness.

The city program found jobs for 17,000 young people last year, and is on track to hire 20,000 in 2020.

Other jobs programs have also kicked in to help young Angelenos, including an Evolve Entertainment Fund to help women, minorities and needy residents find jobs in the film, television and music industries, and an L.A. Tech Talent Pipeline to recruit a new generation of tech talent. For information, go to Interested businesses can call 213-744-7333.


Anonymous donor gives $20 million to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles

Children’s Hospital on Tuesday announced a $20 million gift from an anonymous donor to renovate its emergency department.

The gift — one of the largest donations in the hospital’s history — will fund a larger waiting room, 11 additional patient bays, new equipment and specialized staffing to the Maurice Marciano Family Foundation Emergency Department and Trauma Center, the county’s largest and busiest emergency department for children, CHLA officials said.

The emergency center handles nearly 90,000 pediatric patient visits annually.

“We are filled with gratitude by the generosity of this transformative gift,” said CHLA President and CEO Paul S. Viviano. “The emergency department at CHLA serves one of the largest and most diverse pediatric populations in the nation, and we believe that every child should have access to quality pediatric experts and expertise.”

The emergency department was opened in 2011 as part of the Marion and John E. Anderson Pavilion, and was designed to handle 65,000 patient visits per year. Nearly half of the hospital’s inpatients are admitted through the emergency room, so increasing capacity is critical to saving lives.

“With the new space and technology, the department will increase its capacity to deliver safe, innovative care, improve workflow and reduce wait times for patients, while also training the next generation of pediatric emergency medicine specialists,” said Dr. Alan Nager, CHLA’s director of emergency and transport medicine.

Another change will be the creation of a dedicated “child life” team, whose members are trained and certified to prepare and soothe young patients during difficult emergency procedures, guide clinicians on child-friendly care techniques and better communicate with anxious family members.

“CHLA’s emergency department is a beacon of hope for thousands of families in some of their most vulnerable moments,” Nager said. “In 2016, CHLA launched an ambitious initiative to improve the ED patient experience by improving the speed of treatment while delivering the safest, highest-quality medical care. We saw immediate success with measurable results. Now, thanks to this momentous gift, we will be able to invest in capital, equipment and personnel to better support this improved model.”

Construction is set to start later this year. Administrators say the work will be done in phases to accommodate normal emergency department operations.
