Olympic Station, Korea Town

City Attorney Carmen Trutanich introduced his new Korea Town neighborhood prosecutor (NP), Minah Park, to leaders in L.A.’s Korean American community at the Korean American Federation of Los Angeles’ (KAFLA) annual board meeting.

NP Park, who is based at the Los Angeles Police Department’s new Olympic Station, served as a neighborhood prosecutor for the LAPD’s Newton Division prior to assuming her current position on July 8th. As the Olympic Station Neighborhood Prosecutor, Minah focuses on the day-to-day quality of life crimes and issues through vertical prosecution and other project-based work.

The KAFLA board meeting - which was held at the Dragon Restaurant in the heart of Korea Town - was filled with elected officials, KAFLA board members, community leaders, and Korean American legislative staff members.

The City Attorney - who was introduced by his Asian American Community Liaison Cindy Shin - also spoke to the 150 attendees about his goals for the office, his commitment to building the most diverse public law office in the nation, and his focus on building a solid partnership with the Asian American Community.
