Fired police officer Daniel J. Lowrey sought a court order Friday to force the city to reinstate him. The Superior Court action is necessary because Laguna Beach City Manager Kenneth C. Frank has taken too long to make a decision, said Susan M. Simpson, a legal assistant for Lowrey's attorney, Tom Perez, who filed the complaint. Nearly two months ago, the city Personnel Board said the city should reinstate Lowrey, who was fired by Police Chief Neil J. Purcell Jr.

Arrests here were down 39% last year, a drop Police Chief Neil J. Purcell Jr. attributed to a malaise he says engulfed the department after the release of videotapes of the Rodney King incident and of a Laguna Beach officer kicking a homeless man. The number of arrests in Laguna Beach slid from 4,461 in 1990 to 2,713 in 1991, even though the number of reported crimes dropped by only 22 during the same period, according to a Police Department report released this week.
