The California Council of Police and Sheriffs on Tuesday denounced the nickel-a-drink tax increase proposed on the Nov. 6 ballot, saying Proposition 134 would not fulfill its promises. Up to three-fourths of the tax revenue earmarked for law enforcement could go instead to unrelated programs, the council said.

An organization that represents 6,500 law enforcement officers in the state has unanimously endorsed Los Angeles Mayor Tom Bradley for governor. Al Angele, spokesman for the California Organization of Police and Sheriffs, said the group supports Bradley because Gov. George Deukmejian has opposed measures that affected hours, wages and working conditions for rank-and-file officers. Bradley, a Los Angeles police officer before entering politics, said he was "proud" to receive the endorsement.

The Senate Rules Committee on Thursday approved two nominees by Gov. Gray Davis to four-year terms on the vacancy-plagued state parole board. The committee of three Democrats and two Republicans cleared Sharon L. Lawin of La Verne and Alfred R. Angele of Los Angeles for expected confirmation by the full Senate on Monday. Davis nominated Lawin, a former executive director of the Los Angeles County Professional Peace Officers Assn., in November 1999.
