Downtown Residents Encouraged to Meet LAPD Tonight
There's another event to add to tonight's festivities at the Downtown Art Walk and its at the LAPD's Central Division police station on 6th Street. LAPD Captain Blake Chow and other officials are hosting a open house for the community, which will include a guided tour of the station, live entertainment, demonstrations and a mini food festival of sorts that they are calling a "taste of downtown."
SWAT gear, T3s, motorcycles and new police cars will also be on display at the three-hour event that begins at 6 p.m.
