Police Officer III Dana Binion Named Officer of the Month

Dana Binion May 2011When it is a challenge to isolate just one heroic action or remarkable contribution by an officer, it is evident that the officer’s role in serving his or her community is noteworthy and deserving of special recognition. Officer Dana Binion is a 32-year law enforcement veteran. His tenacity and cutting-edge approach to law enforcement has well served the residents of West Los Angeles.

While officers on patrol in marked cruisers provide a sense of security and perhaps a deterrent to most crimes, they are not as effective in stopping a car theft in progress. In 1992, Officer Binion and Officer Paul Kanary became the founding members of the West Los Angeles (WLA) Surveillance Detail, a program developed to identify suspects that commit auto-related crimes and burglaries, connect those suspects to the crimes, and direct responding units into affect the arrest.

At first, only Officers Binion and Kanary were assigned to this Detail and were deployed to some of the highest crime areas in the City of Angels. In unmarked vehicles, they canvassed neighborhoods and tracked down known criminals and suspects connected to auto theft and burglaries; their weapon of choice was the car’s radio.
