SMPD Holiday Substation Opening on the Promenade
November 28, 2018
Santa Monica, CA – The Santa Monica Police Department (SMPD) is proud to announce the opening of a Holiday Substation at 1313 3rd Street Promenade. In support of SMPD, American Realty Advisors permitted use of the space. The substation will be open from November 30, 2018 – December 31, 2018 for the holiday season.
The Holiday Substation will be a vibrant environment for department personnel to work from and for visitors of Santa Monica and holiday shoppers to enjoy. The substation will operate as a fully functioning space for all officers and personnel assigned to the downtown area to work from with amenities of the Public Safety Facility available on-site.
An impromptu ‘Coffee with a Cop’ Café will be on site for shoppers to stop by and grab a cup of coffee with an officer with no set agenda for visitors of the substation to meet officers, become familiar with the police department and have a friendly conversation. Additionally, the substation will have a display area open for the community and shoppers to view various technological resources and equipment used by officers.
On weekends, a gift-wrapping service operated by the Santa Monica Police Department Explorer Program will be available to holiday shoppers. Lastly, in the spirit of our Hide It, Lock It, Keep It campaign, a package valet will be available daily for shoppers to safely lock and secure any purchases while they enjoy their shopping and dining experiences.
We encourage all community members to visit the substation this Holiday Season.
