Los Angeles Police Pay Respects to Good Samaritan Hospital ER Staff

Patrol cars with the Los Angeles Police Department stopped by the emergency ward of Good Samaritan Hospital to blare their sirens as a sign of respect to acknowledge medical staff fighting against COVID-19, footage shared on April 6 shows.

“Our officers took a moment to show gratitude to our fellow first responders—Healthcare workers that are our front-line soldiers in our global fight against an invisible enemy,” wrote Los Angeles Chief of Police Michael Moore on Twitter. “From the men and women of the LAPD: Thank you.”
