LAPD chief Michel Moore is asking for reappointment for a second term

LOS ANGELES (KABC) — Los Angeles Police Chief Michel Moore is asking to keep his job for another term.

Moore was appointed chief in 2018 by then-Mayor Eric Garcetti to replace retired Chief Charlie Beck.

Moore’s first five-year term runs through June next year. Police chiefs can only serve a maximum of two terms.

On Monday, Moore filed a motion with the Police Board of Commissioners asking for reappointment to a second term.

“It has been my great honor and privilege to serve as chief of the Los Angeles Police Department,” Moore said in a statement released by the department.

“Over the past four and a half years, we have implemented significant reforms, improved training, and increased transparency and accountability. Although much has been achieved, much remains to be done. It is my strong desire to continue to lead this Department as it seeks to enhance public safety and confidence while pursuing 21st Century policing best practices.

There will be an opportunity for public comment before the Commission takes a final decision.

Mayor Karen Bass, who took office earlier this month, said she will review Moore’s request to remain in his position.

On Tuesday she released a statement saying: “I have been informed of Chief Moore’s request for re-appointment. He and I will be meeting soon to discuss his proposal and my vision to keep Angelenos safe in every neighborhood.”

Moore has been with the LAPD since 1981.
