Is the LAPD made up of mostly transplants from other states like the rest of Southern California, or is it many local kids, whose parents are probably transplants, or is it generational?

The NYPD is many locals because you can tell by their accents, and in fact, many are generational. There fathers, or uncles or grandfathers were police.

And much of the surrounding area is mostly made up of former NYPD like Long Island, so they too are similar makeup.

Before Rodney King LAPD recruiting and image was the USMC of the Thin Blue Line. To the point that officers could not transfer in as Riggs will in the new Lethal Weapon TV series. You either came in as a Chief or a Boot going through the academy and probation, the inspiration for The Closer TV series.

After Rodney King major efforts were taken to have the LAPD reflect the community and major strides have taken place. The police force is slightly more Black and slightly less Asian than the city itself. For the rest of the local officers they seem to draw from the same pool as the applicants apply for all and go to the first taker. Many do take LAPD and Sheriff's transfers as the Sheriff's department has the problem that deputies have to serve as jailers while waiting for street policing positions to open up for them.

I am not sure I understand that metaphor about the USMC.

Also who are the best paid cops in SoCal?

In the NYC metro, Long Island cops, and cops in wealthy towns are very well paid. Is that the same in SoCal. Are Orange County cops like in Newport Beach well paid?

They had a similar recruiting pitch, that you can serve in a local police department or we are the best so you might as well leave your community to join the Los Angeles Police and protect those folks families.

I think LAPD is in the middle of Los Angeles County police departments pay wise, but then they have the most positions available. And only the Sheriff has a larger area you can be transferred to for a freeway demotion/promotion closer to home.
