CONVENTION 2000 / THE DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION

Police Stories

August 14, 2000

Never a cop around when you need one? Not a problem in Los Angeles this week and last. At locations having anything to do with the Democratic National Convention, it was hard to find a place without a police presence. At top, LAPD officers are silhouetted against a blank wall at Pershing Square as they await deployment for a scheduled demonstration.

The square, scene of many protests during this week, will have a virtually constant force of police. At Staples Center, site of the convention, security is at its tightest. There is a large Secret Service contingent, including Atom, above center, a Secret Service dog assigned from Washington. Shown on his break, Atom still didn't want anyone too close to his Secret Service car.
