|(October 7, 2017, 8:20 p.m.) -- While the City Council met downtown and heard a report from City Hall's "Innovation Team" on actions it said are focused on improving public safety (described below), two men were shot in the Central LB area of Anaheim St./Walnut Ave. leaving two victims dead, two others wounded. In a release, LBPD states:
On Tuesday, October 10, 2017, at approx. 9:25 p.m., officers responded to the area of Anaheim Street and Walnut Avenue regarding a "shots fired" call, possibly coming from a nearby liquor store, which resulted in the death of two male adults, and the injuring of two others.

At about the same time, the City Council was hearing an agendized report from City Hall's "Innovation Team" on (agenda item title) "the Innovation Team (i-team) Public Safety research and accomplishments." City management's agendizing memo notes that the City accepted the grant, but doesn't mention that the City had to pay roughly $1 million to receive the grant, a sum required by Bloomberg Philanthropies to access the roughly $3 million grant sum.
City management's memo said the grant was "designed to advance the capacity of City Halls to effectively design and implement new approaches that improve the lives of residents" by providing "dedicated in-house Innovation Team (i-team) members to identify and design solutions to pressing issues." City staff's agendizing memo said the LB "i-team" first focused on "Economic Development" (with "solutions" including "BizPort, Inspector Gadget, Hubs and Spaces, Business Navigators and the Economic Development Blueprint) but as of Jan. 2017 has now shifted its efforts to public safety.
[City staff agendizing memo] With a focus on supporting the Long Beach Police Department, the i-team researched the deployment of resources with a lens toward data-driven solutions around high frequency offenders. High frequency offenders are individuals cited or booked 11 or more times over a five-year period. The primary objective of this research effort is to better understand the experience of high frequency offenders with the Public Safety Continuum. The entire Long Beach community benefits from the City's Public Safety Continuum, which includes Police, Fire, Health, Development Services, City Prosecutor's Office, and other key departments, all contributing to make Long Beach a better, and safer city.
