Farewell Sgt. Krumer, Hello Four New LAPD Liaisons
For several years, Sgt. David Krumer has been the bicycling community’s main point of contact with the Los Angeles Police Department. Many can attest that he was always consistent and quick to respond to all manner of issues that arose. LACBC was not alone in relying on him for assistance. Sgt. Krumer has been reassigned and we’d like to thank him for all that he’s done for bicyclists in Los Angeles. Sgt. Krumer, we wish you the best. Come ride with us any time!
With Sgt. Krumer’s departure as the LAPD go-to guy for all things bike, the department recently announced four new liaisons to take Krumer’s place. Each liaison will represent one of four traffic divisions in the City of Los Angeles. Their role is to be available to bicycling public. If, for example, you’ve had an altercation with a motorist or if you have an issue with an LAPD officer that you’ve encountered, the liaisons are there for you. You can contact them according to the traffic division you were in at the time of your incident. For a more detailed description of the change at LAPD, you can read blogger and LACBC Board member Ted Rogers' post on LAStreetsblog. A map of the divisions is on the LACBC blog. Starting now, keep this list handy!
