Let’s cut to the chase: Investigate the police With the most recent filing of yet another lawsuit against the city and its police department by former officers alleging entrenched patterns of discrimination and retaliation, it has become clear that a close examination of the way the city and the Police Department conducts itself is warranted. By way of “examination,” I do not mean the traditional method of naming an exploratory group to review the possibility of forming a review committee, which will then take an excessive amount of time to produce a noncommittal report full of obfuscations and over-broad generalizations that will later be either ignored or paraded around as the truth.

DOWNTOWN — Police Chief Scott LaChasse this week announced that he has brought on a veteran Los Angeles County sheriff’s chief to serve as his deputy should the City Council approve a policy allowing outside recruits. Thomas P. Angel, a 34-year veteran of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, served as a chief under Sheriff Lee Baca before his retirement in January. Angel started reporting to LaChasse on Monday under a consulting contract that expires April 3. He was to perform the duties of captain, and may be given the assignment of deputy chief, according to the contract.
