As the first deputy working in the 6-month-old Neighborhood Policing program in Stanton, Barker works exclusively in the Tina/Pacific Project area along Magnolia and Cerritos avenues.

Most members of the Stanton City Council said Saturday that they are leaning--in some cases reluctantly--toward a plan to disband the city's Police Department and contract instead with the Sheriff's Department. In its proposal to the city, to be considered by the five-member council Monday night, the Sheriff's Department has said it could provide law enforcement services to the city of 29,000 for less than the $2.9 million annual cost of the Police Department.

A plan to disband Stanton's Police Department will be heard at Tuesday's meeting of the City Council.

Earlier this month, voters in the city turned down a property tax increase to help maintain the department.
