LAPD Car

What Police Defunding Looks Like

Summary of LAPD services that will be eliminated and those that will be reduced. In addition, after COVID-19, division front desks will be reduced to office hours Monday thru Friday. Many of these units are citywide so expect an impact in the Valley, especially with the elimination of the HOPE Unit which has been such a great partner to our places of worship since its creation. LAHSA, 311, and 211 will be the points of contact.
