Blake Chow, Highest Ranking Chinese LAPD

Title

Blake Chow, Highest Ranking Chinese LAPD

Description

From Officer to Sergeant, from Lieutenant to Captain, and then finally all the way to Commander, Blake Chow has deserved becoming the highest ranking Chinese-American police officer in the history of the Los Angeles Police Department. He proved he deserved to climb the ladder as he went above and beyond each task and assignment given to him. During his time as Captain, he was given responsibility to start a new division, Real Time Analysis and Critical Response Division. This division would manage the city under major occurrences, analyze crime on a real time basis to look for patterns and where to place officers, and to keep track of all uniformed resources. When Blake was assigned to the Hollenbeck area in 2007, homicide rates dropped at a record that hadn’t been seen since the 1970’s. This kind of effect came with him when he was assigned to Central Area the year after, where crime dropped by 11%. When in 2010 he became Commander, he was the first Chinese-American to do so in the LAPD’s 140 year history, and was awarded the History Makers Award by the Los Angeles Chinese American Museum.
