This room will be used by Detectives to interview children and will serve as a waiting room for them.
The child’s room was furnished by Bankcard Services of Los Angeles. Rampart Detective Division is proud to be in partnership with Bankcard Services, who oversaw the coordination of eight local businesses to design, construct, and furnish this special place. It is comforting to know that the children who come into contact with Rampart detectives and police officers will have a safe and inviting place to enjoy during their visit.
