In regard to the article titled "Long Beach Votes to Keep Its Own Police" (July 15): I guess the decision of the City Council to not accept the Sheriff's Department contract proposal was a small one to them. The council would rather spend $11 million more of the taxpayers' money to have more "control" over the city's law enforcement. Doesn't having a contract mean you are the customer? Doesn't the customer control the terms, limits and execution of the contract? It's apparent how much "control" the City Council currently has with the Long Beach Police.

A majority of the Long Beach City Council said this week that it will support the Police Department and kill a proposal that would replace local officers with Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputies. Five of the nine councilmen said in interviews this week that they would vote against a controversial proposal to abolish the Police Department, which would make Long Beach the largest city in the nation without a local force.

Officer Jana Blair, a Long Beach Police spokeswoman, said no misconduct was involved when William Farley Stovall III, 22, withdrew from the academy only a week after entering it April 3.
