Over 100 LAPD Officers File Claims Over Mold, Other Unhealthy Conditions at Southeast Community Police Station

Over 100 Los Angeles Police Department officers have filed worker compensation claims reporting mold and other unhealthy conditions at the Southeast Community Police Station.

The officers alleged that the Police Station’s heating and air conditioning system vents are covered with black mold and bird feathers. They claimed that these unhealthy conditions are causing respiratory issues including asthma and sinus infections.

The Los Angeles Police Protective League (LAPPL) is demanding that the city administration takes immediate action to mitigate this problem.

LAPD spokesman Josh Rubenstein said in a written statement, “While we understand the mold spore levels do not pose a serious health risk, we are working with the Los Angeles General Services Department to remove it from the building… It is our priority to ensure that LAPD employees and the community feel safe in our stations.”

NASA’s Cargo Run to International Space Station Delayed Due to Mold on Packing Bags


NASA has delayed the next cargo run to the International Space Station after black mold was found in two packing bags.

According to NASA spokesman Daniel Huot, the unmanned Orbital ATK Cygnus craft was scheduled for March 10 and was more than halfway packed when the black mold was discovered in two fabric bags used for packing food, clothing, and other supplies.

According to Huot, “Micro-organisms are everywhere and this type of micro-organism is not uncommon… NASA inspects, samples and disinfects cargo bags to ensure a safe environment for the crew members.”

The cargo ship is now expected to depart by March 22 from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.

The source of contamination is being investigated.
