MANHUNT: Reward For Information Leading to Dorner Capture

Authorities were set to discuss the plan at a 1 p.m. news conference at the Los Angeles police headquarters in downtown Los Angeles.

As the search for Christopher Dorner continues into its fourth day at Big Bear, law enforcement authorities have decided to offer the public a reward leading to his arrest and conviction.

Details of the plan were to be revealed at a 1 p.m. news conference, to be held at Los Angeles police headquarters, 100 W. First St.

The conference will be held by Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, Riverside Mayor Rusty Bailey, Irvine Mayor Steven Choi, FBI assistant Director in Charge Bill Lewis and LAPD Chief Charlie Beck.

Riverside police Chief Sergio Diaz, Irvine police Chief David Maggard and U.S. Marshal David Singer were also expected to attend.

Resources have been scaled back in the Big Bear search, with one helicopter crew providing aerial support and 25 peace officers on the ground, reduced from 50 on Saturday, according to San Bernardino County sheriff's information officer Cynthia Bachman.

"As the number of cabins, rentals and unoccupied/vacation homes diminishes, the amount of personnel and resources needed has been scaled back accordingly," Bachman wrote in a news release.

No new evidence has been found at Big Bear but authorities seem loathe to abandon the search there.

In the meantime, federal agents have joined the search for Dorner and according to published reports, the Transportation Security Administration has issued an advisory for airport operators and managers to keep an eye out for Dorner.

The advisory is attached to this article.

Beck's decision to review the firing of Christopher Jordan Dorner, the rogue ex-LAPD cop now accused of killing a Riverside police officer and a former LAPD captain's daughter and her fiancé, marks a change in tone from the chief since Thursday.

Beck was asked during a news conference Feb. 7 about Dorner's manifesto and the accused cop-killer's allegations of racism in the LAPD, after Dorner allegedly shot police officers in Corona and Riverside.

"You're talking about a homicide suspect who has committed atrocious crimes," Beck told reporters. "If you want to give any attribution to his ramblings on the Internet, go right ahead. But I do not."

When Beck was asked about Dorner's stated desire to clear his name, Beck replied "It's not going to happen."

Reward my foot. This another way of a corrupt institution like LAPD to maintain status quo. Listen to the arrogant LAPD Chief Beck when his asked during a news conference on Feb. 7 about Mr. Dorner's manifesto and here was his response then; "You're talking about a homicide suspect who has committed atrocious crimes," Beck told reporters. "If you want to give any attribution to his ramblings on the Internet, go right ahead. But I do not." My response to Chief Beck is why ask for public assistance now? And let's talk atrocious crimes ; I think the LAPD has the record on these crimes including cover ups. Talk about Dorner rambling??? I hope Chief Beck and his worthless department will eat his words on this. When Beck was asked about Dorner's stated desire to clear his name, Beck replied "It's not going to happen."

Reward??? The LAPD wants to kill him with no questions asked. Why on earth would they give a reward?? This was proven when they opened fire on 2 women. He will have no trial and no one will turn him in. They will shoot to kill! He is a walking dead man. It is sad that is has come to innocent people getting blow out in their truck only on an assumption. If Dorner knows what is good for him he will kill himself.

It was a false siting in the Del Rosa area the reward was the stupidest idea, in the first ten mins of it there were 3reports of him and 3 diff agencies chased their tails Del Rosa area is off the 210 freeway in San Bernardino

Del Rosa is a hot spot for all kinds of activity. The 76 gas station there is rampant with crack heads and heroin addicts. And an armless racist black punk. There was someone who was beat by cops there a few months ago that's on the internet. If you ever need gas, don't get off there at night. Unless you want to be mugged.

The LAPD may be corrupt, but you can't fight fire with fire on this one. Dormer lost all credibility when he went ape shit and killed people who had nothing to do with his issue. I think he's a selfish bastard and needs to be locked up immediately. People get fired from their jobs every day and worse. I've been fired before for something I didn't even do and I didn't go kill my ex bosses daughter over it.

Damn. Now I want to hear the story about the armless, racist, black punk.
