LAPD Commander Patrick Gannon

    Newer Older

    UPDATE-- Patrick Gannon is now Deputy Chief Gannon.

    Los Angeles Police Commander Gannon seemed to be in charge of security at the rally. From what I can tell, the police did a good job at the march. And, by the way, there were no arrests.

    During an awkward moment, when a moment of silence was called for from the organizers during a 'die-in,' a police all-terrain vehicle started heading out over a foot bridge directly over the demonstration. I watched from below as the commander made sure the unaware police officer driving the the atv stopped immediately.

    Seems like a little thing, but his example of respect for the protesters gave me immense respect for him and how well he ran his end of things.

    Thank you, Commander Gannon.

      Pat's a good guy and an example of how a leader assumes accountability for his actions. He's currently the commanding officer of Operations South Bureau, Criminal Gang Homicide Group in South Los Angeles.

      I think it's a nice picture of him at work.
      If you know him, and think he would like it, I would be honored if you sent him a link.

      Thanks

      I agree, it's a nice picture - and I know he'll enjoy it, as I know he'll appreciate your comments (your description and observations that accompanied the photo is dead-on for his style).

      The photo appears to capture a relaxed moment, perhaps something humorous off camera? Of course, there's a hundred-thousand things going on when you're the Incident Commander during a large organized event - to which he always takes things in-stride.

      Thanks, Damon, I'll direct him to the link - I run into him quite frequently.
