Police/Community Partnership Strengthened at National Night Out at the Church of Scientology Los Angeles
Members of the East Hollywood community gathered at the Church of Scientology Los Angeles for a family-friendly evening in celebration of police/community partnership
The evening was made special for local youth with carnival games, a bouncy house, a spray-paint artist, free popcorn and cotton candy, and a movie under the stars. But among the most popular activities for the kids was seeing what it’s like inside a police car and having the chance to climb aboard a fire truck.
During the National Night Out annually, which is hosted at our Church annually, we presented commendations to Los Angeles Fire Station 35 and LAPD Northeast Area officers for their service to the community.
Drug abuse is a factor in so much of the crime in Los Angeles, and Strike Out Against Drugs, a local drug education and prevention nonprofit, brought its mobile drug prevention theater to the event. Strike Out Against Drugs uses the drug education and prevention material of Foundation for a Drug-Free World, the drug prevention campaign supported by the Church of Scientology.
Noting the role substance abuse plays in the disintegration of the social fabric, Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard wrote, “Recent research has demonstrated that the single most destructive element in these societies today is drugs.”
Scientology Churches and Scientologists are active in drug education and prevention throughout the year. They work in close coordination with the Los Angeles Police Department and L.A. County Sheriff’s Department, providing drug education materials, programs and training to anyone wishing to take effective action to tackle this urgent issue.
We are an Ideal Scientology Organization, configured to service Scientologists in their ascent to spiritual freedom and serve as a home for the entire community—a meeting ground of cooperative effort to uplift people of all denominations.
An episode of Inside Scientology featuring the Church of Scientology Los Angeles was part of the special program when Scientology ecclesiastical leader Mr. David Miscavige launched the Scientology Network in 2018. This episode is available at DIRECTV channel 320 and can be streamed at Scientology.tv, through mobile apps and via the Roku, Amazon Fire and Apple TV platforms.
