LAPD Chief Charlie Beck to seek a 2nd term
WESTCHESTER (CNS) – The first of a series of meetings seeking public comment on Charlie Beck’s bid for a second, five-year term as chief of the Los Angeles Police Department will be held from 6-8 p.m. tonight at the Westchester Senior Center.
Beck submitted a letter to the Police Commission last month officially seeking a second term, saying he has led the department through the “toughest financial era since the Great Depression” while overseeing a reduction in crime and gang activity and the completion of federal consent decree requirements.
Other meetings will be held Thursday at the A.G.B.U. Manoogian- Demirdjian School in Canoga Park and July 8 at the Lincoln Heights Senior Center.
Comments can also be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or mailed to the Los Angeles Board of Police Commissioners, 100 W. First St., Room 134, Los Angeles, California 90012.
The Los Angeles Police Commission, whose five members are the LAPD’s civilian bosses, has until Aug. 20 to respond to Beck’s request for a second term.
