Hall of Justice

A Hall of Justice is an occasional term for a city's police headquarters, and exists in cities across the United States. In some cases, the facility may also house courts as well as jails.


Los Angeles

In Los Angeles the Hall of Justice was the centerpiece of the Los Angeles County justice system until it was damaged in the Northridge Earthquake. The historic building was featured on television shows including "Dragnet" and "Get Smart". More significantly, it was the home of Los Angeles County courts, the Los Angeles County Coroner, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Office, and the Los Angeles County District Attorney, and was for many years the primary Los Angeles County jail.

Notable residents of the Hall of Justice included Charles Manson and Sirhan Sirhan. Autopsies performed at the Hall of Justice include those of actress Marilyn Monroe and the assassinated presidential candidate and former United States Attorney General Robert Kennedy.

There are restoration plans to again make it the Sheriff's Headquarters. [ [http://www.laconservancy.org/issues/issues_list.php4 Los Angeles Conservancy | Preservation Issues ] at www.laconservancy.org]
