REBA raises nearly $8,000 for police storefront office

The La Jolla Real Estate Brokers’ Association, Inc. (REBA) raised close to $8,000 in cash and commitments to fix a deteriorating police storefront servicing the officers that patrol La Jolla.

SDPD Northern Division Capt. Brian Ahearn gave a presentation on Realtor safety and the need for renovations to the Pacific Beach-La Jolla police storefront. Courtesy

After learning about the condition of the storefront — among many that the San Diego Police Department has no money to renovate or repair — REBA member and board treasurer Jeffrey Nun, of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, dropped in.

Nunn said he was “disgusted” with the conditions he found, including cracked sinks and tile flooring.

“There was a real disconnect between the affluence of our community and the conditions the men and women who protect our community have to work in,” he said.

Following a presentation by Northern Division police Capt. Brian Ahearn at REBA’s Oct. 10 meeting, Nunn challenged members to donate, pledging the initial $500, which was matched by REBA member Nancy Gardner and others in attendance.

The La Jolla Town Council and Bird Rock Community Council are also working to raise funds for the renovations. Anyone wishing to contribute can mail a check to: 5666 La Jolla Blvd., #168, La Jolla, CA 92037 care of SDPOA. Checks should be made out to the San Diego Police Officer’s Association and contain “storefront” in the memo line.

For more information, contact Nancy at (858) 775-7575 or Michelle at (858) 775-8500.
