The Los Angeles Police Commission on Thursday named its top three finalists in the search for the Los Angeles Police Department's new chief. Unfortunately, openly gay deputy chief David Kalish, who is in charge of the city's Westside operations and was considered one of the leading candidates for the job, is not among them. None of the three finalists, in fact, come from within the LAPD.
Making the cut are former Philadelphia police commissioner John Timoney, former New York police commissioner William Bratton, and Oxnard, Calif., police chief Art Lopez. Lopez, however, did begin his career as an LAPD officer and was with the force for 28 years before going to Oxnard.
An interview with David Kalish will appear in the next issue of The Advocate, on sale at newsstands beginning October 1.
