The Los Angeles Police Museum will roll out the blue carpet on September 27, 2019, for the annual Jack Webb Awards – named in honor of the legendary director of the popular television shows, Dragnet and Adam-12. A special 150th celebration of the Los Angeles Police Department will kick off the night, honoring law enforcements’ role in creating safer communities throughout their history.
“I am grateful to once again being a part of the Jack Webb Awards as you honor the good works of law-enforcement and acknowledge portrayals in the world of entertainment. As the granddaughter of a volunteer firefighter, and grand-niece of a state trooper, I look forward to sharing this night with you and your families.”- Christine Devine
Over 400 leaders, from business, law enforcement, political dignitaries, entertainment, and philanthropic communities are expected to attend, recognizing the stellar and influential life of Jack Webb and the storied 150 years of the LAPD. Greeted by historical and current LAPD vehicles and displays, guests will enjoy a gourmet dinner during the awards gala program at the famous Langham Huntington Hotel in Pasadena. To support new youth programs and community initiatives, guests can participate in silent and live auctions raising funds for this good cause.
