As previously reported by LBREPORT.com, following recommendations by then-Mayor Bob Foster, the LB City Council (which included then-Councilman Robert Garcia) erased over a period of years starting in 2009 (entering FY10) 208 budgeted citywide deployable police officers (over 20% of LB's citywide deployable level) including the elimination of LBPD's field anti-gang unit.

Under Mayor Garcia, despite LB voter approval of a June 2016 sales tax increase ("Measure A") now bringing City Hall over $50 million more annually, LB's current City Council has restored only 22 of the budget-erased officers, leaving LB without 186 officers (including a field anti-gang unit) that it previously had but no longer has.
