Thanksgiving Celebration

November 15, 2007

Los Angeles Police Department Providing Lunches at Elementary School

Friday, November 16, 2007
11:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Ninth Street Elementary School
820 Towne Avenue, Los Angeles 90021

Metropolitan Division, Mounted Platoon

The Mounted Platoon has had an incredible relationship with the Ninth Street Elementary School since 2003. Members from the Mounted Platoon have hosted many events and outings with the children of this special school. As a result of this relationship the Mounted Platoon formed a program affectionately known as the Mini-Mounties, a program that provides a positive interaction between the children of the Skid Row area and members of the Los Angeles Police Department.

This year, in the spirit of Thanksgiving, members from the Mounted Platoon will provide approximately 500 Hot Dog lunches (hot dog, chips, and a soda) to the children and, of course, our police horses will be present for the event as well. Officers will cook the food, be available to talk with the kids, and answer all their questions about the LAPD and our horses.

For further information contact Sergeant Mike Porter, Metropolitan Division, at 213-485-5909.
