LAPD’s Request for $119M Budget Increase Clears Police Commission

0

The Los Angeles Board of Police Commissioners supported an increase of $119 million for the LAPD’s budget Tuesday for the 2023-24 fiscal year, which would bring the total general fund budget for the department to $2 billion.

The proposed budget now heads to the mayor and City Council for approval.

A majority of the increase in funding, $105.5 million, would go toward salaries and expenses. The department plans to hire 780 officers and rehire up to 200 sworn personnel through its recall program in an attempt to address “back-to-back years of substantially higher rates of attrition within our sworn and civilian workforce,” Police Chief Michel Moore wrote in a letter to the board.
