Angelinos may not be aware that there are many children who are experiencing homelessness or who are impacted by homeless-related issues. The Los Angeles Police Department, and personnel assigned to Central Area, continuously work with the local missions to provide these children with opportunities that they might not otherwise get to experience.

The Los Angeles Police Department Ice Hockey Team, Olympic Figure Skater Tai Babilonia, the LA Kings and Central Area personnel will come together to help teach these children how to ice skate. In addition, the LA Kings will be handing out gifts to the children. This experience will undoubtedly give these kids hope, inspiration and continue to foster a great relationship with the officers who are dedicated to protecting them.

If you have any questions about this event, please contact LAPD Deputy Chief Marc Reina at (213) 305-4541 or email
