Ouch! Gascón pops his knee on City Hall steps

It looks like police Chief George Gascón will start the season on the injury list. The chief hurt his knee while jogging a few weeks back and now he may need arthroscopic surgery to repair the damage.

Gascón told the Police Commission on Wednesday evening that he realized it was time to see the doctor when he heard his knee pop as he was taking the City Hall stairs two at a time. Now, the salubrious chief is awaiting doctors’ orders as far as surgery goes.

Let’s hope the injury doesn’t slow down the new chief, who is moving fast to restructure the department. The reorganization should start by November. He’s looking to promote a number of officers within the department. And the first CompStat meeting, with the public invited, is expected in early October.
