The City of Los Angeles has initiated the recruitment for the next Chief of the Los Angeles Police Department.  Under the City Charter, the recruitment for the Chief of Police is conducted by the General Manager of the City Personnel Department and the Board of Police Commissioners.  The Board of Police Commissioners will submit the names of three candidates ranked in numerical order to the Mayor who will then appoint one as the Chief of Police with the selection confirmed by the City Council.  The ideal candidate must demonstrate qualities and characteristics that reflect our diverse communities of Los Angeles.  Our community members have a critical role to play in helping to recruit the next Chief of Police. 

Through six community input sessions and this online survey, community input will be used to target recruitment efforts when evaluating applicant’s knowledge, skills, abilities and personal characteristics.  This information will also be used to develop interview questions.  The survey results will be tallied and made available to the public for their information.
