OCTOBER 17, 2009 – On what was a warm autumn day, the men and women of the Northeast Community Police Station opened up their doors for their annual open house. Members of the community descended upon the station for an inside look at the facility many Department employees, both sworn and civilian, call home.
Booths were set up in the back of the station where people could receive information on the Police Reserve program, the Police Explorers, local healthcare organizations, credit unions and the military to name a few. Perhaps the most popular booth was the “Pumpkin Patch” where children could design their own jack-o-lantern just in time for Halloween.
Local vendors were on hand and donated food which was given away free at the event. A stage in the center of the lot showcased performances from local talent which included school children and the Los Angeles City Fire Department had fire trucks on display.
The annual Northeast Open House is designed to bring the community together in an effort to enhance existing relationships and develop new relationships within the community. The Department would like to thank the volunteers, donors, and community for helping make this event a tremendous success.
