A year-old program aimed at enticing more Los Angeles police officers and firefighters to buy homes in the city they patrol is off to a sluggish start, statistics show. Yet backers of the program--which offers financial incentives ranging from no-down-payment loans to debt counseling courses--say they're satisfied with the progress so far. "So many officers feel they'll never be able to afford a home," said Police Commissioner Dean Hansell, who spearheaded the project.

Hoping to encourage police and firefighters to move into Los Angeles, city and federal officials on Monday unveiled a home loan program featuring rock-bottom down payments, public matching funds and a debt write-off. Mayor Richard Riordan called the plan "a win-win program that will help the city's police officers and firefighters realize the American dream--owning their own home in the neighborhoods they serve . . . and an even bigger win for Angelenos."
