Looking for something different to do this weekend?
Why not head to our local police station for its official Open House, which takes place Sunday from 12:00 Noon to 4:00 pm? There will be food, live entertainment, and exhibits. You can get a guided tour of the station. For kids, there will be games and a fun zone. There will also be a raffle with prizes.
You can see displays from LAPD Air Support, SWAT, the Mounted Unit (horses), and the bomb squad. There will also be a selection of classic police cars, as seen in movies and television shows over the decades.
Admission is free, and the public is invited.
The LAPD Wilshire Station is located at 4861 W. Venice Boulevard, one block east of La Brea Avenue. That’s behind the Midtown Shopping Center that has a Ralphs Supermarket and an OSH store (and which will soon have a Lowe’s home improvement store next door). You can park on Venice Boulevard, or in the OSH parking lot.
