Parker Center

150 N. Los Angeles Street

Parker Center

This city police central administrative center, completed in 1955, was named for the Chief of Police of the Dragnet era, William H. Parker. A sculpture by Bernard Rosenthal, "The Family Group," is located at the Los Angeles Street entrance. The Parker Center was a flashpoint of the city's 1992 civil unrest. The Parker Center is set to be replaced in 2010 with a new LAPD headquarters directly south of City Hall.
