Hoping to learn about ways to prevent and respond to terrorist attacks, the Los Angeles Police Department will send a team to Paris to meet with authorities there as they continue to carry out raids on suspected terror cells in response to the attacks that left 129 people dead, reports mynewsla.com.
LAPD Officer Liliana Preciado said Chief Charlie Beck will not be among those traveling to Paris, and she declined to provide details about when the group will be traveling or which members of the department would take part in the trip.
"The chief is sending a group to meet and confer and look at the issues to see if there is any lesson we can learn," Preciado said.
Beck, in remarks reported on KNX Newsradio, said the department has "a lot to learn" from the Paris attacks.
"This is a new type of incident that may have evolved through a different set of planning rituals and we want to make sure that we become aware of that and that we're more able to respond to it here in the United States," he said.
