Police chief announces restructuring

As promised, Chief George Gascón has scheduled the first major realignment of the Police Department command staff in decades.

The restructuring, effective Nov. 14, creates three assistant police chief positions instead of one – one handling operations, another technology and finance and the third discipline. Approximately 100 investigators will also be shipped from the Hall of Justice to district stations so that they can be nearer to the community than they've been under the “centralized model we have,” Gascón said when he first talked about the plans.
