LAPD Releases Photos of New Northeast Station

The project will be paid for through the use of $28.45 million in Proposition Q General Obligation Bond funds, which were approved by city voters in 2002, and $500,000 in 2011-12 Police Forfeited Assets monies.

Construction of the of the new Northeast LAPD station won't begin until the summer of 2012, but the public got a sneak peek at what the facility will look like through the department's Facebook page on Monday afternoon.

The Los Angeles City Council in July unanimously approved a $29.45 million plan to replace the Los Angeles Police Department's Northeast Division station on 3353 San Fernando Road.

The new station will be located at the intersection of San Fernando Road and Treadwell Street in Glassell Park.

The project will be paid for through the use of $28.45 million in Proposition Q General Obligation Bond funds, which were approved by city voters in 2002, and $500,000 in 2011-12 Police Forfeited Assets monies.

LAPD has occupied the 41,000 square foot site since 1983. The building was formerly used a film processing facility.

The new station will not include a new vehicle maintenance and parking structure, as that would push the total cost of the project to nearly $50 million.

instead of putting money on an office building ..they should have invested that money to having more police officers out there patrolling the streets. With the way the economy is right now the last thing the city needs is another high tech looking building...and yet we continue to have a growing rise of auto thefts, burglaries, and crime happening on our streets.

Hey "concerned" - have YOU ever visited the existing District #14 station? I suspect not. Its a DUMP. Ancient computers and phone systems, worn out finishes, broken down mechanical systems... its awful. This is a GOOD thing. The Police need our support if they are going to make a dent in the gangbangers. This is an example of what we SHOULD be spending capital tax dollars on - its an ESSENTIAL city service for crisakes...

No i haven't visited the police station and I intend not to..As a citizen of this community i am more concerned about the safety on our streets . Even if we needed updated computers and phone systems we didn't need to spend all those millions of dollars (that our city doesn't have )on building a new modern building. Where ever the funds are originated from -the city should have put that money into our school systems or for more police officers on our streets. A lot has changed since 2002 when this vote was first approved by the voters as well.

The city wastes a lot of money on lots of stuff. But this project is not one of them. The Northeast Station deparately needs a new station. Anyone who has visited the station can see that once they walk one foot in the door. I am totally against waste but this station is operating in 1950's mode. It is not an option for them to come into this century. This is one project that is desparately needed.
