Monthly Video Series - LakelandPD "Up Close"

In an effort to better serve our community, the Lakeland Police Department is creating a video series to take you “Up Close” into the lives of the men and women who serve and protect. The members of the Lakeland Police Department take pride in the work they do and continue to serve with a Commitment to Excellence. The video series is designed to give the community a “behind the scenes” look into how LPD does business.

Each month the video will highlight a component of the department, giving insight into the operations of that unit. The video will first be shown during the monthly Chiefs Chat, which is held on the first Monday of the month. In addition, the monthly topic of the Chief’s Chat will coincide with the video.

The video is written and directed by Sgt. Gary B. Gross, filmed and edited by City’s Communications Department. The videos will be available on:

•        YouTube 
•        Lakeland Police Department web site:  www.lakelandgov.net/lpd
•        Lakeland Police Department Facebook:  LakelandPD 
•        City of Lakeland web site:  www.lakelandgov.net
