South Park Welcomes Captain Howard Leslie To Central Division
South Park BID
March 16, 2016

Captain Michael Oreb has served the Central Patrol Division since 2012. Under the first year of his leadership, Central saw violent crime fall by 21.6%, while all Part 1 crimes (the most serious infractions) dropped by 14.5%. A San Pedro native, Captain Oreb will be returning to the Harbor Area as the commander of LAPD’s Harbor Division station. The South Park BID would like to thank Captain Oreb for his dedication and service, as we wish him the best in his new position.

Captain Howard Leslie will take Captain Oreb’s place in the Central Division. Captain Leslie has served the Wilshire Division as the division’s patrol captain since 2013, and as the division’s commanding officer since 2014. The Wilshire Division had the second lowest increase in overall crime in 2015 in all of LAPD. It is with great excitement that the South Park BID welcomes Captain Leslie to the neighborhood!
