LAPD Breaks Ground on New Northeast Station

By EGP Staff Report

A ground-breaking ceremony held Monday marked the construction of the new and much needed Northeast police station.

LAPD command staff, civilian personnel and city officials gathered in the parking lot of the Northeast Station for the ceremony.

“Today we celebrate the birth of a new police station on the same day we mourn the death of two fine police officers,” said Chief Beck referring to Officer Roberto Sanchez who was killed in a traffic collision while on duty and Officer George Nagata who passed away from a heart attack.

“We need to give you [officers] a place where you can feel not only at home but safe,” he added.

The city of Los Angeles has owned the property since 1982 and this LAPD station since 1983. Proposition Q, a $600 million public safety bond, is funding the renovations.

The event was attended by Assistant Chief Sandy Jo MacArthur, who presided over the ceremony and guest speakers council members Mitch O’Farrell, Gilbert Cedillo and Tom La Bonge. Police Commission President Steve Soboroff, Northeast Commanding Officer Jeffrey Bert, and Interim City Engineer Deborah Weintraub were also in attendance.
