Los Angeles: In an effort to improve response times, and attend to the needs of our most important customers, the people of Los Angeles, the LAPD will be adjusting the hours of front desk services for several Area Police Stations. Starting December 1, 2017, Devonshire, West Valley, Southeast, and Southwest Police Stations will provide front desk services to the public from 7 a.m., to 11 p.m, while all other LAPD Police Station’s front desks will currently remain open to the public 24 hours a day. These new business hours will allow the areas to put more officers on the street available for routine calls for service and emergency response.
The changes in front desk services will not affect normal operations at the above Police Stations. Officers assigned to every Division will continue to handle calls for service 24 hours a day within these communities and LAPD officers will be staffed on premises 24/7. Red Call Boxes have been installed in front of these stations for the public’s use in the event of an emergency during the hours the front desk services are not operational; the phones link directly to 911. Signs indicating the hours the front desk services are operational have also been affixed to these four stations
