Long Beach Mayor
Robert Garcia

"I have 100% confidence that Chief Luna will lead with integrity, strength, and a commitment to community policing. He will ensure that we build a department for the 21st century."

Lena Gonzalez.png

“During my five years on the Long Beach City Council, I worked closely with Chief Luna. I’m especially proud of his work with the LGBTQ community here in Long Beach, as well as his deep work in our diverse communities: Black, Brown and Cambodian.”

Ricardo Lara.png

CA Insurance Commissioner Ricardo Lara

"I am thrilled that Chief Luna is running for LA County Sheriff and will solve the leadership crisis at the Sheriff's Department. Chief Luna has a reputation for listening and problem solving.

Hans Johnson.png

LGBT Activist Hans Johnson

"Robert Luna is the only serious candidate for sheriff. He brings stellar credentials in education and in modern police management and governance. He also boasts high marks from the LGBT community and others in Long Beach, a meaningful base of support for a countywide candidate.

Victor Manalo.png

​​Victor Manalo, President, Nat'l Assoc. of Social Workers, CA

"I am an ardent supporter of Chief Luna for LA County Sheriff. His work shows that he is willing to take a leadership role during a time that has been very challenging for law enforcement. Chief Luna understands his responsibility as a public servant and has the emotional intelligence and political savvy for the job.
