|(May 30, 2020, 10:35 p.m.) -- As a precaution -- not a response to any LB disorder -- LBPD is on a "modified tactical alert." This effectively means more officers than usual are deployed, said LBPD Watch Commander Lt. Greg Schirmer.
LBPD's precautionary action comes in the wake of looting that broke out at midafternoon after what began as a large but peaceful protest in Los Angeles against the Minneapolis police officer involved death of George Floyd.
A protest at L.A.'s Pan Pacific Park (Beverly Blvd. between Fairfax and La Brea) turned into looting along Fairfax Ave and spread northward onto Melrose Ave. (between Fairfax and La Brea) and southward to The Grove Center along Third St. next to Farmers Market.
Looting also occurred in the Pico/La Brea area, in some parts of downtown Los Angeles and in the evening along La Cienega Blvd. b/w Beverly Blvd. and Melrose Ave Grraffiti and other vandalism were visible in the affected areas. Some fires reported.
Looting also occurred in Beverly Hills along Rodeo Drive.
