Baffled LAPD Seeks Advice From Junior High Students

The LAPD is running an essay contest open to LA Unified students in grades six through eight. This year’s topic: If you were a Los Angeles police officer, how would you help solve the problems in your neighborhood or community?

Extra credit will be awarded to students who answer the bonus question: If you were a PR Manager, how would you fix the LAPD’s current public relations disaster?

Ten finalists will appear on Primera Ediciуn, Univision’s KMEX 34 morning show, and have their picture and essay printed in La Opiniуn.
