Glendale, CA – The City of Glendale and the Glendale Police Department teamed up on Saturday to transform Isabel Street into an event-filled walkway for the Annual Police Open House, and City Hall’s 75th Anniversary. Hundreds of residents came to dance, to learn, and to mingle with the friends and families of the Glendale community.
Residents flowed from one event to the next, stopping only to enjoy the free food and entertainment scattered throughout the street. In the City hall lobby and the adjacent parking lot, event goers found free cupcakes, drinks, and souvenirs, along with a spectacular live performance from the 1940’s music group, the Beverly Belles.
Closer to the Police Department, attendees found a helicopter, SWAT and forensics displays, a rock climbing wall, and a showcase of the well-trained K-9 units.
To Police Chief Castro, the event was a shining success. “We at the Glendale Police Department relish any opportunity we get to showcase personalities and talents of our exceptional team,” the Chief said. “And what better way to show residents who we are than by offering free lunches, health screenings, safe driving courses, and tours of our equipment and special unit teams.”
Dan Bell, Glendale’s Community Relations Coordinator, said, “This was a perfect way to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the City Hall building. This iconic structure still stands as a shining example of the classic World War II era architecture and continues to serve as the heart of the City of Glendale.”
