My boy Alex of StreetGangs.com just posted this video he did interviewing L.A.P.D. Detective Charlie Beck,one of the top candidates to replace outgoing Chief of Police Chief William Bratton.
The application process for the next L.A.P.D. chief began on September 2, 2009 and on the same day, the Los Angeles Police Commission had their first of five community meetings to hear from the public about what they wanted to see in their next chief. Alex had a chance to speak with Detective Charlie Beck, about how he believed it was important for L.A.’s next chief to be an insider, his qualifications, the work that Chief Bratton has accomplished during the last seven years, and the controversial arrest of L.A.P.D. Detective Stephanie Lazarus who is accused of murdering her former boyfriend’s wife.
