The July 7th memorial for the "King of Pop" cost the city of Los Angeles $3.2 million dollars, according to a report released on Friday.
Officers provided security at the Staples Center arena, the Jackson family compound in Encino and Forest Lawn Cemetery. There were no reported problems.
The report also estimated that the memorial service brought in $4 million in revenue to the city's businesses from increased tourism.
City Attorney Carmen Trutanich says he will seek reimbursement from Anshutz Entertainment Group, or AEG, the owner of Staples Center and organizer of the memorial, for the city's costs.
"The bottom line is that the city attorney is very committed to recouping the taxpayer's dollars," spokesman John Franklin said.
"During these tough economic times right now, that's big money. We're laying off and people are getting furloughed."
Tim Leiweke, president of AEG, claimed last month that Trutanich is trying to "bully" his company into paying the city's costs of the memorial.
The Jackson family has already agreed to transfer $1 million to cover the costs of the funeral for the pop singer.
Michael Jackson, 50, died of an overdose of the dangerous sedative, propofol, on June 25th. An investigation into his death is on-going.
