L.A.’s city personnel manager says they’re trying to expedite the process to name a replacement, but they don’t want to cut any corners. That means the selection process may happen in November, after Chief Bratton has left.
The Personnel department will begin accepting applications next month. They’ll also be conducting an online survey – asking the public to rank the qualities they’d most like to see in the next police chief.
To further ensure public participation, the Police Commission will hold community meetings throughout Los Angeles.
The job opening will be posted on the city’s Web site for two weeks.
