LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Members of the Los Angeles Police Department received a memo Friday regarding a handful of units that may be cut due to the city’s financial crisis caused by the pandemic.

The following units are among those possibly being disbanded:

  • Sexual Assualt Special Section
  • Homeless Outreach and Proactive Engagement
  • Burglary Special Section

Meanwhile, the higher-profile robbery and homicide detectives will get rolled back to patrol.

The cuts come months after Mayor Eric Garcetti cut the department’s budget by $150 million in response to protests over the death of George Floyd.
