As the Police Commission delayed its decision Tuesday on appointing an interim police chief to replace Chief Bernard C. Parks Bernard Parks (born December 7, 1943 in Beaumont, Texas) is a member of the Los Angeles City Council, representing the 8th District in South Los Angeles and former Chief of the Los Angeles Police Department.
Parks attended Los Angeles City College, received his B.S. , the question arose as to whether Parks had actually tendered a letter of resignation and officially quit the force.
Police Commission President Rick Caruso said Parks hadn't submitted a letter since announcing on April 22 that he's retiring, although Caruso added: ``I believe there's one forthcoming.''
Parks' attorney, Gloria Allred Gloria Rachel Allred (born Gloria Rachel Bloom on July 3, 1941) is an American lawyer and radio talk show host. She is also the mother of Court TV hostess Lisa Bloom. , said the chief had indeed sent a resignation letter last week.
``The lawyer is wrong,'' responded Police Commission Executive Director Joe Gunn. He said the only correspondence that the commission has received from Parks was a note restating his intent to retire at some point this week. ``Officially, we have not received a resignation letter.''
However, the missing resignation letter was not the reason that the commissioners were unable to pick an interim chief Tuesday. Rather, the five-member panel concluded that it needed another week to gather background about the six candidates for the position.
``We're going to shoot for making a decision at the meeting next Tuesday,'' Caruso said. ``We want more information on the candidates.''
The commissioners have already had a week to call the six candidates for the interim post but apparently didn't gather their resumes or interview the candidates.
On Tuesday, Caruso indicated that the six candidates for the interim chief position are LAPD 1. LAPD - Link Access Procedure on the D channel.
2. LAPD - Los Angeles Police Department. Acting Chief Michael Bostic, Cmdr. Tom Lorenzen, Deputy Chief Julius Davis, and former Deputy Chiefs Martin Pomeroy, Scott LaChasse and Larry Fetters fet·ter
