Councilwoman Traci Park’s Statement On the Death of Keenan Anderson

LOS ANGELES, CA (January 11, 2023) – I have watched the video of the moments preceding Keenan Anderson’s death and I want to extend my deepest condolences to his loved ones and everyone affected by this tragedy.


Los Angeles Police Department officers are given significant responsibilities, and the public expects them to exercise their duties in a responsible manner.  I will continue to prioritize transparency and accountability during this critical investigation.


We must also lead our community forward on addressing the mental health crisis- a crisis that robs us of friends and family, causing life-altering events with cascading consequences. I am committed to taking action to address this emergency. I have begun having conversations with our county and non-profit partners to look at solution-based ideas that bring more mental health support to the Westside.
