As a member of the West Valley Police Department's Clergy Council, M.T.O. Shahmaghsoudi® was invited to attend a forum hosted by the Los Angeles Police Department on strengthening trust between communities and police officers through collaboration with faith groups to keep Los Angeles safe. Mayor Eric Garcetti was a guest speaker at the event who emphasized how the faith communities and law enforcement are anchors for what people stand for as they help the vulnerable. Several Los Angeles Police Officers expressed how happy they were to have M.T.O. attend their event, and shared enthusiasm for potential collaboration projects. We also look forward to our continued participation in the Clergy Council of the West Valley Police Department who work to protect communities against crime and violence.
