Los Angeles – On Wednesday, June 27, 2001, from 5:00 P.M. to 7:00 P.M. the Los Angeles Police Department, in conjunction with the Los Angeles Police Historical Society will be hosting the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony to celebrate the opening of the Los Angeles Police Museum and Community Center.
The Los Angeles Police Historical Society began leasing the old Highland Park Police Station building in Northeast Los Angeles from the City in 1994. The building had been gutted by fire and vandalism. This was particularly a poignant tragedy since the building is on the National Register of Historic Places and has been designated by the City of Los Angeles as a Historic Cultural Monument. The building will house the Historical Society’s Headquarters, the Los Angeles Police Museum, a police substation, and a community center.
During the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony, LAPD Static Displays will include an antique police vehicle, the Metropolitan Division Mounted Unit, and the mobile police museum. Los Angeles Police Chief Bernard C. Parks and Los Angeles City Council Member Nick Pacheco will be attending the event to celebrate the opening of the new Los Angeles Police Museum.
