Longtime LAPD cop to be named next SF police chief

A longtime Los Angeles police officer is expected to be named the next police chief of San Francisco, the San Francisco Examiner has confirmed.

Los Angeles Police Department Deputy Chief William Scott, who was appointed to the department in 1989, is set to lead The City’s Police Department after former Chief Greg Suhr resigned in May.

Scott has worked assignments in patrol, detectives and gangs, among others, and is a graduate of the Senior Management Institute of Policing, according to the LAPD website. Scott also has a Bachelor of Science degree in accounting.

The Police Commission in November forwarded its top three picks to Mayor Ed Lee, who makes the final choice. More than 60 candidates applied for the job.

Acting Chief Toney Chaplin has held the post since May, when Suhr resigned.

This is a breaking story. Check back for updates.
