Groundbreaking Ceremony For LAPD's Newest Community Police Station
Groundbreaking Ceremony Press Conference
11121 North Sepulveda Boulevard, Mission Hills.
Thursday, March 29, 2001
Los Angeles Police Chief Bernard C. Parks and City Officials
In 1998 the voters of Los Angeles approved "Proposition 2" which authorized the sale of general obligation bonds for the construction, expansion, and renovation of police facilities. The land development of the North Valley Police Station, which will be the LAPD's 19th Community Police Station, is also a result of Proposition 2.
The addition of the North Valley Community Police Station will allow the Department to improve services provided not only to the immediate area, but also throughout Operations-Valley Bureau. The creation of the North Valley Community Station will allow the Department to reduce the coverage area of the other 5 stations in Operations-Valley Bureau. It is anticipated that this reduction will result in a decrease in officer response times for call for service throughout the San Fernando Valley
The North Valley Police Station will be a 54,000 square feet facility. It was designed to support the Department's Community-Based Policing efforts. In addition to housing the Area's Patrol and Operations Support Divisions, the facility will include a 1500 square feet Community Room, an explorer scout room, and work-space for police volunteers and boosters.
The public is invited to attend the Groundbreaking Ceremony.
