At the City of Industry, we understand that issues like public safety, parks and open space, youth programs, and veterans programs are critical to building community - and that our community extends beyond our borders to the residents of surrounding communities that are employed by firms that operate in the City of Industry. That is why we are committed to investing in programs that will improve quality of life in the City of Industry as well as in surrounding communities. Explore the programs below to learn more about some of the City of Industry's commitments to the region.
LA County Sheriff's Department Autism Awareness and Mental Health Training
The City of Industry has funded a series of training seminars in partnership with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Industry Station on recommended response measures when encountering autism related issues in the field. This training program is unique to the Industry station, and has been attended not only by Sheriff's officers, but also by local school district officers and the CHP. In Fiscal Year 2017-2018, the City is committed to continuing these training sessions, and also supporting the establishment of a mental health incident rapid response team at the City of Industry Sheriff's station that will respond to critical incidents and provide support to the eastern San Gabriel Valley.
Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department - Industry Station, Youth Activities League
The City of Industry has a long history of providing support to youth programs in surrounding communities through the Industry Station Youth Activities League (YAL). The YAL started in 1991 as a collaborative effort with the city and local businesses to counteract the negative forces of gangs and drugs. In addition to providing programs to positively influence at-risk youth, the Sheriff's Industry Station YAL also serves over 2,500 local youth through programs such as football, basketball, soccer, scuba, martial arts, summer camps and educational field trips - at no cost to participating youth or their families. The program has been extremely successful at providing experiences to local youth that may not have been within their reach, and also to developing relationships between local youth and the deputies that patrol their communities.
Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1944 Improvements
The Chair of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors Hilda L. Solis, former Los Angles County Supervisor Don Knabe, and the City of Industry came together to provide much-needed funding for roof and parking lot repairs to the local Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) post. Prior to this commitment from the City and County, the VFW Post 1944 had been operating with an approximately 30 year old roof and a damaged parking lot.
Independence Day Celebration
The City of Industry is a proud annual supporter of the Independence Day Celebration, held in partnership with the City of La Puente. In 2017, the City of Industry donated $40,000 for the event and also provided support and volunteer staffing. The Independence Day Celebration is a free vent that brings approximately 20,000 spectators to La Puente Park every year.
