Fighting crime with free bikes and balloons

Can crime fighters throw a good party? Echo Park and Silver Lake residents will be able to judge for themselves this month as the LAPD's Northeast and Rampart divisions, which serve both communities, hold open house events.

The Rampart division, which boasts a new station house on Sixth Street, will host its open house today with tours of the new station, the opportunity to meet officers and recruiters as well as free food (mentioned twice on the flier) and a chance to win kids bikes and gifts.

Northeast, meanwhile, will host its open house next weekend. The aging and cramped Northeast station on San Fernando Road is not much to look at. But what the Northeast station lacks in curb appeal it's officers are trying to make up for in activities, which range from a moonbounce, balloons, free hot dogs for kids and even a DJ.

If you are not into moonbounces or police station open houses, check this week's Save the Date for other Eastside events.
