LAPD Lawn Replacement Still Coming Soon, Rain Permitting
Tire tracks from the "True Blue" gala are still visible on the lawn behind LAPD's new headquarters.
DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES — January's rain storms delayed work to replace the lawn on the 2nd street side of LAPD's new headquarters, but a contractor should be brought in as soon as the site dries out a bit, according to Thom Brennan, commanding officer of facilities management.
The nearly one-acre lawn was heavily damaged by setup for the November 7 "True Blue" gala put on by the Los Angeles Police Foundation. While the foundation was quick to accept responsibility for the damage and to promise to pay for damages, getting the work done has taken longer than expected.
The event raised $900,000 for Police equipment, training and youth programs.
