Conspire to make positive impact in lives of hundreds of elementary students

LOS ANGELES — Encore South Bay, a non-profit theater company that creates student leaders through arts education and mentorship programs, exerted a positive thrust toward that goal in early January.

The organization donated hundreds of free theater tickets to local elementary schools in the 15th Council District for a free show at the Warner Grand Theatre in San Pedro, Calif., to see “Beauty and the Beast.” Councilman Joey Buscaino’s office pitched in and donated buses to transport students from Watts to the Warner Grand Theatre. It should be noted that the Los Angeles Police Department Community Safety Partnership (CSP) organized the outing and providing lunch to boot.

The LAPD CSP Program leads the national conversation on community and relationship-based policing, operating in the Newton, Hollenbeck, and Southeast Divisions.
