In Long Beach, at least three events were planned after thousands gathered in Long Beach and Lakewood on Friday.
Police Chief Robert Luna called the images “disturbing” and a spokeswoman said the department immediately launched an investigation on Thursday when they learned of the photos.
The demonstration is the largest since the May 31 protest that ended in a standoff between police and protesters and police using less-lethal rubber bullets to attempt to quell the crowd.
The actions, outlined in a memo by 4 members of the City Council, come during the 6th day of protests calling for police reforms after video showed a white police officer suffocating George Floyd in Minneapolis on May 25.
Protests are planned throughout the day in Long Beach, including a demonstration at Harvey Milk Park at 5 p.m. Friday.
A curfew may still be imposed at a later time, depending on “the situation at hand,” City Manager Tom Modica said.
Many in the mostly low-income, working class community already were already struggling financially amid coronavirus shutdowns of businesses, and then Sunday’s looting happened.
Demonstrations are expected to take place Long Beach City College and Harvey Milk Park, among other locations, on Friday.
“The images depicted here are very disturbing and are not in line with the high standards we hold our officers accountable for,” Police Chief Robert Luna said in a statement.
