This will be a fascinating and rare opportunity to receive the “inside scoop” on how our city government works, both in terms of making the laws and also enforcing the laws. The Councilman was a uniformed police officer before being elected City Councilman, and he will be speaking from his background in both law enforcement and also as an elected representative of the community.

Born, raised, and educated in Los Angeles, Councilman Dennis P. Zine was first elected to represent Council District 3 in 2001. The district includes the communities of Canoga Park, Reseda, Tarzana, West Hills, Winnetka, and Woodland Hills with a population of nearly 300,000 residents.

His public service career began over 41 years ago with the Los Angeles Police Department. Within the LAPD, he rose to the rank of Sergeant and worked a variety of assignments including Patrol, Motorcycle Detail, Detectives, Intelligence, Administrative, and Vice. He was also elected three times to the Board of Directors of the Los Angeles Police Protective League.

There will be a Q&A session after the presentation. Refreshments to be served.
