Erected at the cost of $437 million the LAPD has moved from the Parker Center into the new 10-story, 500,000 square foot Police Administration Building. On October 24, 2009, the City of Los Angeles introduced the building to the world via a ribbon-cutting ceremony that included Chief William Bratton, Mayor Antonio Viallaraigosa, City Councilwoman Jan Perry and many other City officials.

Earlier in the year City Councilman Bernard Parks who also served as LAPD chief for five years suggested using the old name, Parker Center, on the new building. Immediately many people rejected that proposal because of the racial division former Chief William Parker created within the black community. blankistant chief Jim McDonnell told streetgangs.com that there is a new era now and that he would not call the new building Parker Center.

McDonnell also talked about the application process for the chief of LAPD position and the new police headquarters.
