Graham & James

Scope and Content

Graham & James researched two issues: the role of gender in the use of excessive force, and instances of gender discrimination within the LAPD. Research toward this end was derived from a wide variety of sources, including published literature, theses and dissertations, studies and statistics, police ride-alongs, and personal interviews. The series includes a memorandum issued by Graham & James discussing the reasons why female officers are less inclined to use excessive force, as well as many of the firm's interview notes.

Heller, Ehrman, White & McAuliffe

Scope and Content

A critical component of the Commission's investigation centered on the idea that governance of the LAPD was shared between the Office of the Chief of Police, an administrative body, and the Board of Police Commissioners, a citizen body. To better understand the dynamic between these two entities, the staff of Heller, Ehrman, White, & McAuliffe researched the history of the Los Angeles City Charter, focusing primarily on its provisions regarding the distribution of power and the structure and organization of the LAPD. Included in the series are reproductions of reports, dissertations, article clippings, excerpts from city documents, and charter amendments related to the charter's conception and development over time. The series also includes several summaries of expert witness interviews regarding the effectiveness of this structure.
