Why:       
In 2003, the Los Angeles City Council approved the use of bonds from the Municipal Improvement Corporation of Los Angeles to fund the renovation of a new police headquarters.   

The new Police Administration Building is a 500,000 square-foot structure that features 10 floors, a Café called LA Reflections, underground parking, a parking structure and a 400 seat civic auditorium.  

The new police facility will replace Parker Center which, was built in 1955. Chief Bratton has said "This new police facility has finally brought us into the 21st Century.  As society and advancements in technology change, we too must adapt as a police department.  This state of the art facility will enable us to do just that."

At the Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony, Chief Bratton will continue the year-long celebration of the Department's 140th Anniversary and welcome the public to tour the new building, its environmentally friendly grounds as well as the new Memorial Monument and Reflection Garden that was formally dedicated on October 14th.

Those attending the event will have the opportunity to meet many of the officers who patrol the Downtown area, view displays from some of the Department's specialized units, be entertained by local talent and enjoy samples of some of Downtown’s finest eateries.

PARKING:   
Parking for the Media has been reserved on the north side curb of First Street between Los Angeles and Main Streets, facing west.
