The Sexual Assault Special Section, Robbery Homicide Division, will be disbanded under the LAPD in Los Angeles. This is per a memo that went out to LAPD department personnel about the "unexpected Department budgetary crisis and shortfall."

Dominic Choi, deputy chief of staff to Chief Moore, sent the memo, which read that the Chief of Police is "making significant and difficult changes to adapt to the current financial and personnel shortages."

Additional Specialized Details will also be disbanded.

The Safer Cities Initiative, which primarily deals with homeless encampments in LA's "Skid Row" area and the Homeless Outreach and Proactive Engagement unit will be cut.

The Burglary Special Section and Cargo Auto Theft Detail, Commercial Crimes Division, will be cut.

The Animal Cruelty Task Force, Detective Support and Vice Division, will no longer be funded by the LAPD.

Downsized units include: Pacific Area Beach Detail, Parks Tasks Forces, Robbery Homicide, Commercial Crimes, Metropolitan Division, Traffic Group, and Labor Relations Unit.

Existing vacancies will not be filled. The department will be using the Managed Attrition process to divert funds into "patrol and patrol-related duties."
