About 40% of the 320 Los Angeles Unified School District police officers staged the first day of an expected two-day sickout Thursday, complaining that they have worked without a contract for two years and are unnecessarily placed in danger because of outdated communications equipment. The sickout, which union leaders said was independently organized and would continue today, left 44 high schools and middle schools without on-site officers.

Re "Park Rangers Seek Right to Bear Arms for Protection," Sept. 23. I am writing this in support of arming the L.A. city park rangers, but first I must point out some outdated political rhetoric. In your article you state that the park ranger's union does not support arming them with firearms. I would point out that the Park Rangers Assn. is a very small part of SEIU Local 347, which is entirely controlled by civilians who have no experience or interest in law enforcement. Your article also speaks of the LAPD's historical policy of "one city, one department."

A homemade bomb blasted a student's unoccupied car at Cal State Northridge on Friday, apparently as revenge because the car's owner made a comment about another man's girlfriend, Los Angeles police said. Two suspects were arrested. Michael Quinn, 20, and Kurtis Jensen, 21, both of Los Angeles, were arrested on suspicion of possession of a destructive device after the 12:30 a.m.

In an effort to improve communication during violent school incidents such as April's mass shooting in Littleton, Colo., local police and school administrators Thursday began delivering thousands of cellular phones to high school teachers across Los Angeles and Orange counties. Officials said the wireless phones will allow educators in remote parts of schools to quickly alert law enforcement dispatchers during emergencies, enabling police to greatly improve response times to crimes on campus.
