The Long Beach PD officers listed below are suffering through major ailments that have forced them off of work for extended periods of times. Their friends have established pages for the officers on the "Go Fund Me" website.
OFFICER LARRY MULOCK (RETIRED LBPD)
Retired LBPD Officer Larry Mulock was diagnosed with Stage 4 colon cancer in February 2016. The cancer has already spread to other parts of his body, and he just started the long process of chemotherapy. Larry is a 10-year veteran and a tremendous human being with a wonderful family.

OFFICER SCOTT NISHITANI (LBPD)
For the last several months, Officer Scott Nishitani has been battling P.O.E.M.S. syndrome, an extremely rare blood cancer, that has caused Scott to lose strength in his extremities. He has been in and out of specialized treatment for months. Thank you to everyone who helped modify Scott's home in order to make it more wheelchair accessible.
