June 4, 2018, Los Angeles — Today, LA Mayor Eric Garcetti announced that he has chosen Michel Moore to be the next LAPD Chief of Police, replacing Chief Charlie Beck who will step down later this month. In response, Martha Sklar, President of the League of Women Voters of Los Angeles (LWVLA), issued the following statement:
“The League of Women Voters of Los Angeles, supports strengthening the relationship between LAPD and the many communities it serves. SB 54 (California Values Act) and Mayor Garcetti’s Executive Directive 20 (“Standing with Immigrants”) require that local law enforcement fully disentangle itself from federal immigration enforcement. Incoming Chief Moore must continue reforms that build trust, so that Angelenos will report crime and cooperate with investigations that make our city as safe as possible. We hope that he will continue the efforts initiated by the Police Commission and Chief Beck to provide anti-bias training to all members of the LAPD and to encourage and reward the use of de-escalation techniques on the streets of our City.” -- League of Women Voters of Los Angeles
The LWVLA is excited to welcome new LAPD chief, Michel Moore and looks forward to working with him.
