About a hundred folks came to Dodger Stadium's private digs for "Senior Lead Officer Summit" hosted by the LAPD's Northeast Division.
Pasta was served as concerned citizens heard about plans for the new building at Northeast and current crime statistics.
Blake Chow, Assistant Commander of the LAPD's Counter Terrorism and Special Operations Bureau, gave the keynote address.
Photographer Gary Leonard--who lives in the area served by Northeast--snapped the accompanying photos.
Northeast leadership will also be on hand Tuesday night at Echo Park's National Night Out event, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Walgreen's parking lot at Sunset Boulevard and Echo Park Avenue.
Look for the Echo Park Path booth there too.
