The Los Angeles Dodgers have made a significant gift to the LAPD in the form of $250,000.
The MLB team members and its ownership group made the significant donation towards Steve Soboroff‘s new project of outfitting police officers with small video cameras that record their every interaction.
Said Dodgers controlling owner Mark Walter: “Nothing is more important than the safety and welfare of the people of Los Angeles. As members of this community, the Dodgers are honored to be able to support the LAPD.”
Others who have given donations to the LAPD include $250,000 from philanthropist Casey Wasserman and $50,000 each from former Mayor Richard Riordan and DreamWorks’ Chief Executive Jeffrey Katzenberg.
