Funding Sought For Unincorporated Area Patrols
On a motion by County Mayor Michael D. Antonovich and Supervisor Hilda Solis, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved funding for an additional 67 patrol deputies for unincorporated areas in next year’s budget.
The Sheriff’s Dept.’s assessment of patrol services conducted in April of last year recommended adding 123 patrol deputies to enhance service levels in the county’s unincorporated areas in two phases. Phase I consisted of adding 56 deputies and Phase II consists of adding 67 deputies. Antonovich’s motion to implement Phase I was unanimously approved in December. The motion directs the interim chief executive officer to set aside the necessary funding for an additional 67 patrol deputies for unincorporated areas in next year’s budget.
