LA cuts police budget to fund community programs

LA Mayor Eric Garcetti announced that up to $150 million will be cut from the LA Police Department. This comes as part of relocating $250 million from the city’s budget to fund programs in communities of color. The money is expected to be reinvested in services, such as health and job programs, in black communities. Garcetti plans to expand the force’s mental health intervention training program.
