LOS ANGELES, Nov. 29, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Los Angeles Airport Police Officers Casey Brummer and Abel Burboa were recently honored at the City of Inglewood's Fifth Annual Police and Fire Appreciation Day, November 18, for their dedicated efforts in enforcing the solicitor ordinance at LAX.

Officer Brummer, a four-year veteran, and Officer Burboa, a three-year veteran, were selected for their focused dedication and work with the Los Angeles City Attorney's Office for writing declarations to the U.S.-Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals urging a motion to lift the injunction against enforcement of LAMC 171.02(c), which prohibits soliciting for and immediately receiving funds at the airport. In the past, the actions of solicitors posing as information guides created a detrimental atmosphere for passengers and visitors to the airport.

Officers Brummer and Burboa, currently assigned to Patrol Services, worked with LAX Airport Operations staff and trained fellow officers on how to enforce the airport's anti-solicitation program.

"Thanks to their selfless service and commitment to an issue that affected the airport experience of passengers and visitors for over a decade, their hard work has helped prevent solicitors from taking currency from the travelling public and has brought relief to LAX tenants, Airport Police and the airport community as a whole," said Airport Police Chief George R. Centeno. "Their efforts went above and beyond the scope of their duties."

Co-hosted by the Inglewood/Airport Area Chamber of Commerce and Rotary Club of Inglewood, the Police and Fire Appreciation Day event was established to recognize the finest men and women, who serve and protect the community. 

Los Angeles Airport Police is the fourth largest law enforcement agency in Los Angeles County, with more than 1,200 law enforcement, security and staff personnel. Los Angeles Airport Police is a division of Los Angeles World Airports, the City department that owns and operates three airports in Southern California: LAX, LA/Ontario International (ONT), and Van Nuys (general aviation).
