The Los Angeles City Council unanimously confirmed LAPD Assistant Chief Michel Moore to be the new Chief of the Los Angeles Police Department on Wednesday, 6/27/2018.
Moore is a 36-year veteran of the Los Angeles Police Department and is taking over for Charlie Beck, who officially retired on the same day. Beck served on the force for 40 years and was Chief for nearly nine years.
Prior to his current post, Moore served at nearly every level of the Department, rising through the ranks of police officer, detective, sergeant, lieutenant, captain, commander, and deputy chief. He has overseen operations and officers in the Rampart Area, the San Fernando Valley, and West Los Angeles. Over the course of his career, he has played a central role in matters ranging from counter-terrorism and the use of force to fiscal, personnel, training, and other management issues that are front and center in the Department’s work and success. He is now the 57th Chief of the Los Angeles Police Department.
“I am deeply humbled by the opportunity to lead the extraordinary men and women of the Los Angeles Police Department — and to serve the people of this City as its next Chief of Police,” said Chief Moore. “Together, we will do our part to keep the momentum going in reducing crime, enhancing public safety, building the confidence of our communities in this Department, and living up to our values of compassion, understanding, and trust.”
