A NIGHT AT THE SPORTS MUSEUM 2 • SATURDAY NOVEMBER 2 • 2013
Each year the Wilshire Community Police Council (WCPC) has raised thousands of dollars for the Wilshire youth empowerment programs.
This year the need for money is even greater, as there are more than 200 boys and girls age 8 – 21 in our Cadet programs, making it one of the largest programs of its kind in the city. Funds raised allow these young people to have year round opportunities to reap the benefits of educational, cultural and police training activities, which they would otherwise not have.
Cadets receive valuable experience they will use for the rest of their lives. Since the program’s inception, Cadets (formerly know as Explorers), have gone on to join the ranks of the Los Angeles Police Department as well as various local, state and federal agencies. Many others have become professionals in education, law, transportation, medicine, financial services, communication and management.
From a former participant in the program:
‘I am part of the Wilshire Police Cadet program. When I was 14, I didn’t realize the harm my group of “friends” was causing me nor the amount of positive advantages the program had to offer me. It took me a long time to understand how much of my life I owe to the Cadets program and the people in it. I know that if my mother hadn’t struggled so hard to make me join, I would probably be affiliated with a gang, pregnant or even dead. I have so many people to thank.”
As a support arm of the LAPD Wilshire Division, WCPC is dedicated to providing officers with the latest in crime fighting technology not budgeted by the city, as well as overseeing events and activities bringing law enforcement and community together.
WCPC, a non-profit arm of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Wilshire Community Station, is excited to return to the Los Angeles Sports Museum for “A Night At The Sports Museum 2”. This event will be held on Saturday, November 2, 2013, and is a private one night only special event. Please consider becoming a sponsor supporting our very important Wilshire Community Youth Empowerment and Leadership programs.
