In an effort to reach out to the community, the LHPD partners  with local businesses to offer meet-and-greet information opportunities.
Guests at the event, located at 820 E. Whittier Blvd., were able to check out police and SWAT equipment, talk with officers to learn about police work and take photos with the vehicles.
Many children, as well as their  parents, took advantage of the opportunity to try on some of the gear and see what police officers have to work with.
Employees at Primarily Hair offered cupcakes and snacks for those who attended.
Also, community safety information was available.
Organizers of the event from Primarily Hair and the LHPD are looking forward to doing a similar event again in the future.
