LOS ANGELES AIRPORT POLICE SWEARS IN TWO NEW POLICE OFFICERS 

(Los Angeles, California – August 9, 2013) Today, new Officers David Holcomb and Christian Flores joined the ranks of the Los Angeles Airport Police following their graduation from Class 2-13 of the Los Angeles Police Academy at Elysian Park, downtown Los Angeles.

Among the 33 recruits in the academy class, officer Holcomb received the “Over All Top Recruit” officer award for scoring the highest overall percentage in academics, physical fitness, tactics, driving and firearms. He also scored number one in tactics and was voted class Vice President by his academy peers. Officer Flores led his peers as squad leader in the academy.

Los Angeles Airport Police Chief Patrick M. Gannon attended the graduation ceremony and performed the swearing-in of the officers. Also in attendance were Arif Alikhan, the Los Angeles World Airports Deputy Executive Director of Law Enforcement and Homeland Security, Assistant Chief Michael Hyams, Captain Latasha Wells Amerson, Lieutenant Edward Trahan, and a host of other Airport Police personnel. Chief Gannon said, “I am very proud of the dedication and leadership these new officers have demonstrated throughout this journey. Their accomplishments are the result of their hard work and dedication. Please join me in welcoming them to our organization.”

Officers Holcomb and Flores are expected to complete a six-month Field Training Program specific to airport law enforcement under the guidance of a Field Training Officer before being assigned to Patrol Services Section.

The Los Angeles Airport Police Division is the Nation's premier aviation law enforcement agency with over 1,100 specially trained police officers, security officers, and civilian staff protecting Los Angeles International, Ontario International, and Van Nuys airports.
