Police Advisory Committees

I had a conversation with Chief Luna, who told me they still have monthly Police Advisory Committees (PACs) for each Division.  This is entirely false.  What we have today is a monthly spin session given by the Commanders or their Lieutenants to a silent audience of neighbors or interested parties.   We are told what is going on, according to …

Renegotiating LBPD Contracts

This post is a response to an article in the Beachcomber by former Councilperson of Long Beach’s 5th District, Gerrie Schipske, titled “Can we Defund the LBPD?” found here. Always well thought out Gerrie Schipske. I do humbly have to disagree on the final conclusion. The logic is, if we disband the Police Department we would still be obligated to …

Call to Action for LBPD Rank and File

May Update From Robert Fox

Out of respect and concern for priorities, we put our campaign on hold as our fellow residents responded to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many have lost their jobs, some may lose their businesses, and to those who have lost loved ones, I mourn with you. Three weeks ago I was shocked to learn that a dear friend of mine, Garry Bowie, lost his …
