An extra officer will be added to Seal Beach's police force to allow the city to join a profitable narcotics suppression program without detracting from its current patrol force of 42 officers. Cities participating in the Regional Narcotics Suppression Program, which began in 1986, have received an average of $250,000 a year in shared assets seized from drug dealers, Capt. Ken Garrett said.
