Movie Fact #843 – August 13th, 2015:

The name of the police force in the 1992 film “Unlawful Entry” was the LAPD – the Los Angeles Police Department. This part they got right, but their motto and date of inception, as seen in the movie on a police vehicle, is “to serve and protect” being founded in 1781. In reality, the motto of the LAPD is “To Protect and to Serve” and was founded around 1853-1869 showing that, every once and awhile, a film can’t get all the little facts right.
