Both property and violent crime has risen year over year in Long Beach. We feel it in our 3rd District. Today LBPD has 160 FEWER sworn police officers than it had in 2009. 42 FEWER officers than just two years ago! There is little deterrence to crime in our community. It is understandable why crime rates continue to increase in our neighborhoods and business districts. Greg will create safer neighborhoods. He will fight to add 100 more police officers citywide.
