Public Health to Host Virtual Town Hall for June 15 Reopening; Mobile Vaccination Sites Increase in L.A. County
3 New Deaths and 134 New Confirmed Cases of COVID-19 in Los Angeles County

The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (Public Health) has confirmed 3 new deaths and 134 new cases of COVID-19.  The number of cases and deaths may reflect reporting delays over the weekend. Of the three new deaths reported today, one person that passed away was over the age of 80, one person who died was between the ages of 65 and 79, and one person who died was between the ages of 50 and 64.

To date, Public Health identified 1,245,253 positive cases of COVID-19 across all areas of L.A. County and a total of 24,392 deaths. There are 255 people with COVID-19 currently hospitalized. Testing results are available for nearly 6,830,000 individuals with 17% of people testing positive. Today’s daily test positivity rate is 0.3%.  Case numbers and other metrics continue to remain low and stable.

Public Health will host a Virtual Town Hall on Reopening on Thursday, June 10, at 6:00 p.m. Join the town hall to get the latest updates on the June 15 reopening of Los Angeles County. The town hall will be streamed live on Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube @lapublichealth. For more information and to submit a question, visit: tinyurl.com/AskReopeningTownHall.

As California reopens and physical distancing requirements and capacity limits for customers are lifted on June 15, protecting L.A County workers will be a top priority especially those communities that were hardest hit during the worst of the pandemic. Last week, the Cal/OSHA standards board recommended relaxing physical distancing and masking requirements for fully vaccinated workers, and other adjustments to align with the June 15 reopening. If the COVID-19 Prevention Emergency Temporary Standards are approved by the Office of Administrative Law, the standards are expected to go into effect no later than June 15.

The most powerful step to take to prevent COVID-19 infection, is getting vaccinated. As of June 4, more than 9,619,204 doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered to people across Los Angeles County. Of these, 5,501,512 were first doses and 4,117,512 were second doses. More than 4.5 million or 54% L.A. County residents 16 and over are fully vaccinated.  Sixty-five percent have received one dose of the vaccine.

Burbank Chief of Police Scott LaChasse Announces His Upcoming Retirement
 
Burbank Chief of Police Scott LaChasse Announces His Upcoming Retirement
Burbank, CA (May 27, 2021) – Burbank Chief of Police Scott LaChasse has announced his upcoming retirement from the Burbank Police Department. His last day as Police Chief will be July 6, 2021. His retirement will mark the end of an unparalleled 51-year career in law enforcement. Chief LaChasse’s 11 1/2-year tenure in Burbank has been characterized by innovation, transparency, establishment of personal accountability and service excellence.
Chief LaChasse has been involved as a local law enforcement officer and private security professional since March 1970, when he joined the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD). Following a 32-year career with the LAPD, having worked scores of diverse assignments, Chief LaChasse retired as a Deputy Chief. His final assignment was Commanding Officer of Operations-South Bureau, a command of approximately 1800 personnel. Chief LaChasse then assumed a new role in the private security sector as the Vice President of Studio Protection for Paramount Pictures Corporation. After his retirement from Paramount Pictures, he transitioned to Southern California Edison as the Manager of Regulatory Compliance. On January 7, 2010, he was appointed as the Chief of Police of the Burbank Police Department (BPD).
“Onward and upward” is not only a phrase often used by Scott LaChasse, it has epitomized his approach to leading and managing the BPD. He is a strong proponent of community policing and incorporating law enforcement “best practices” wherever possible. He is known for practicing what he preaches. For example, during his career he has dedicated himself to selfless service as a volunteer and member of numerous boards of directors. Some of the more notable organizations include the Los Angeles Police Museum, the Parker Foundation, Challenger Boys & Girls Club, Chief Special Agents Association, and Peace Officers Association of Los Angeles County. The Chief is also a member of the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi, Burbank Noon Rotary Club, FBI National Academy Associates, International Association of Chiefs of Police, California Police Chiefs Association, and the California Peace Officers Association. Chief LaChasse has lectured on national and international levels to public officials concerning leadership and the management of critical incidents.
Chief LaChasse holds a B.S. degree with Honor from California State University at Los Angeles (CSULA) and an MPA degree from the University of Southern California (USC). He is an ardent proponent of Constitutional Policing, ethical behavior, continuous improvement, police/community partnerships, strategic planning, continuing education and simply “doing the right thing!”
During his tenure in Burbank, Chief LaChasse was an innovator. He began by partnering with sworn and civilian personnel to create a contemporary mission statement and formulating the core values of Respect, Integrity and Excellence. He also established the Peer Support and Chaplain programs. Further, he endeavored to develop truly state-of-the art policies and procedures. Similarly, SWAT capabilities were expanded and enhanced.
Chief LaChasse also instituted a rigorous audit schedule and was instrumental in obtaining the services of the Office of Independent Review (OIR), a civilian oversight body, to conduct independent audits of citizen complaints, uses of force, bias policing, police vehicular pursuits, and related matters. Under Chief LaChasse’s leadership, the BPD went through the rigorous steps for accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA), the gold standard in public safety. The CALEA accreditation complemented Chief LaChasse’s embrace of the six pillars of President Obama’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing. In fact, one of Chief LaChasse’s most significant improvements to BPD field operations was in direct alignment with Pillar No. 3 of the Task Force, which addressed the effective use of technology. Chief LaChasse was responsible for the purchase and deployment of both in-car and body-worn camera systems. Following their use, personnel complaints dropped precipitously. Also, he introduced the Burbank Police Commission and Police Department to training and standards of the National Association for Civilian Oversight of Law Enforcement (NACOLE).
Despite these impressive innovations, perhaps Chief LaChasse’s most meaningful contributions to the City of Burbank have been in the area of police/community relations. He has personally engaged the community at every opportunity. During his time as Chief, he expanded the BPD’s Community Academy to include communities that speak only Spanish and Armenian. One session was devoted solely to the deaf community. He has encouraged his senior staff to be involved in the community as well. Senior BPD staff serve on the boards of directors of the Family Service Agency, Burbank Police Foundation and the Boys and Girls Club of Burbank and the Greater East Valley. Chief LaChasse currently is a member of the Burbank City Council’s Racial Equity and Diversity Subcommittee.
One of the most enduring aspects of Scott LaChasse’s legacy will be the Mental Health Evaluation Team (MHET) that was formed and deployed during his tenure. This co-response model has proven its efficacy many times over as MHET personnel have managed the mentally impaired and the homeless population in Burbank. Even as the
Chief heads for the door, he has put plans in place to expand the MHET function in order to provide coverage seven days a week.
Chief LaChasse’s retirement follows his recent receipt of the prestigious Joe Rosen Lifetime Achievement Award from the Peace Officers Association of Los Angeles County (POALAC). The award, in part, cited his “serving myriad diverse communities with dedication, integrity, compassion and outstanding leadership.”
STATEMENT FROM CITY MANAGER JUSTIN HESS
I want to thank Chief LaChasse for all his service to the Burbank community. Over eleven years ago, the Chief came to the department at a time of turmoil and uncertainty. From implementing progressive policing policies to instilling strong organizational values and a culture of continuous improvement, the Chief leaves an impressive legacy. His leadership will be felt for many years in the future through the innovations and systems that he brought to the BPD. The Chief’s sincerity, openness and engagement with the community have served to build public trust and legitimacy.

88rising Announces Dates and Venue for 2021’s Head In The Clouds Los Angeles Festival Alongside Second Single Release of Head in the Clouds III, “California”

The Asian Music and Media Company Announces this Year’s Festival with a Brand New Single and Music Video from 88rising Flagship Artists

California Music Video.jpg

WATCH THE “CALIFORNIA” MUSIC VIDEO

LOS ANGELES, CA: May 27, 2021: The global, leading Asian music and media company, 88rising, in partnership with Goldenvoice, the Los Angeles-based company behind concert events like Coachella and Stagecoach, announced today the 2021 Head In the Clouds Festival will take place on Saturday, November 6 and Sunday, November 7, 2021 at Brookside at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, CA.

In conjunction with the festival announcement is the release of “California”, the next single from 88rising’s long-awaited Head In The Clouds lll collaborative album, via 88rising/12Tone Music, LLC. Featuring 88rising flagship artists Rich Brian and NIKI and newcomer Warren Hue,“California” is a heartfelt ode to the idyllic Golden State. The single release is accompanied by a music video directed by Jason Ano that intermixes candid footage of the three Indonesian transplants together along with intimate vignettes of life in Californian suburbia, and glimpses of Asian-Americana. LISTEN TO “CALIFORNIA.”

The single release is accompanied by a music video directed by Jason Ano that intermixes candid footage of the three Indonesian transplants together along with intimate vignettes of life in Californian suburbia, and glimpses of Asian-Americana. LISTEN TO “CALIFORNIA.”

Head In The Clouds III is the next installment of the iconic album series featuring 88rising artists and special guests from East to West. The project will bring listeners from around the world into the Asian diasporic experience through a universal lens – lovelorn, self-reflective, and homesick songs about triumphing over self-doubt and being caught between two worlds. Over wistful acoustic guitar and ethereal production from Wallis Lane, Jack LoMastro, and Jacob Ray, “California” is an arresting introduction to the next Head In The Clouds installment.

“This song is about three Indonesian kids that managed to chase their dreams. Whether it’s acting, being a scientist or an architect or both, it’s all attainable,” said Rich Brian. “In this case NIKI, Warren, and I attained the same thing and that is making a career in California, which comes with its highs and lows.”

“It was so great to have gotten the opportunity to collaborate with my fellow Indonesians Rich Brian & Warren Hue. Songwriting-wise, it was the most organic coming-together between the three of us. Hope you guys enjoy it!” shared NIKI.

“The verse I wrote included the reality of being Asian in America and how I see California as a whole,” said Warren Hue. “The process of making this song was interesting because it shows the perspective of three Indonesians talking about America and it’s definitely a fun project.”

2021 marks the very first time the Head in the Clouds Festival, which originally debuted in 2018, will be held over a span of two days, a change brought on by its continued growth and success. The 2018 Head In The Clouds Festival welcomed 10,000 attendees and in 2019 the attendance rose to 22,500.

This year also marks a new, larger location for the festival, Brookside at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, CA. In previous years the Head in the Clouds Festival was held at Los Angeles State Historic Park, with star-studded lineups from the Pan-Asian community including acts from Joji, Rich Brian, Higher Brothers, Anderson .Paak, iKON, Zion.T, and more.

“We’re excited to bring back the world’s greatest Asian music festival to Los Angeles at a new location just outside the historic Rose Bowl. Both the 88rising and Goldenvoice teams have been hard at work to provide fans an immaculate experience from the lineup to the production to the food. We can’t wait to see everyone there,” said 88rising founder Sean Myashiro.

This year, a $1 donation per ticket will ensure that young people in Los Angeles have access to creative exploration through Inner-City Arts, widely recognized as one of the nation’s most effective arts education providers for children in Los Angeles’ Skid Row. Purchasers will have the option to donate additional funds at checkout.

Registration is open now for exclusive access to the presale & the lowest Trust Us Presale ticket for fans. Presale begins this Friday, May 28th at 10am PT, with general public on sale on June 4th. Trust Us Presale tickets will run at $199 USD+ fees for 2 Day General Admission and $349 USD for 2 Day VIP, with Trust Us on sale tickets at $225 USD+fees for 2 Day GA and $375 USD+fees for VIP.
