The mayor and police chief of Los Angeles assured the Jewish community that a strong police presence will be in place during the High Holidays. “We will raise our visibility to an even higher level than in past years,” Police Chief William Bratton said during a news conference Monday at the Simon Wiesenthal Center, attended by FBI, state and local officials. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa sought to buck up nervous Los Angeles residents by declaring that “Los Angeles is as well prepared as any other city in the United States.”
