In efforts to bridge the gap between police and our youth we will also have a College Fair for high school students to obtain information from UCLA, Loyola Marymount, Cal State Los Angeles and Occidental College.  All grade levels are encouraged to attend to speak with Admission Counselors and learn what is needed to apply.

For additional information please contact Sergeant Phil Thompson or Detective Wheeler at Southeast Community Relations Office, 213- 972-7962.
