Assignment Editors: Need your input...

Assignment Editors: Is this unusual? Is the LAPD trying to improve its media relations dept?

This is the first time under Bratton I have seen them actually tell the news desks where the command post is without us having to call. We'd like your input. Please tell us your thoughts by using the comment function at the bottom of this message.

Here's what the LAPD sent out:

Advisory, Alvarado OIS, URGENT CNS Network Advisory
Eds: Police are investigating an apparent officer-involved shooting at 835 S. Alvarado St. near McArthur Park, says Kevin Maiberger of the LAPD's Media Relations Section. The Los Angeles police officer was responding to a call about a neighbor dispute when the 25-year-old man was shot in the chest at 2:22 p.m., he said.
Media can park on the street outside the yellow tape or park at the northeast corner of Eighth and Alvarado streets and walk east on Alvarado, Maiberger says. Lt. Paul Vernon is on scene. Map page 594, C-3.
