Police Commission President Deirdre Hill, presiding over her final meeting as a member of that board, said Tuesday that commissioners issued a set of 1996 goals to Los Angeles Police Chief Willie L. Williams as part of their mandate to hold the chief accountable for his management. "It's our job to give direction," said Hill, adding that commissioners would evaluate Williams' performance for the year in terms of how well he accomplished the objectives that commissioners set out for him.

Los Angeles Police Commission President Deirdre Hill on Friday moved to shift new emphasis onto reports of sexism and sexual harassment detailed on the so-called Mark Fuhrman tapes, which have moved beyond the O.J. Simpson double murder trial and into a raging municipal furor. "The whole context of the tapes was Men Against Women," Hill told the Los Angeles Commission on the Status of Women, referring to a clandestine organization of male LAPD officers.

Meeting for the first time since its controversial bid to reprimand Chief Willie L. Williams was reversed, a scaled-down Los Angeles Police Commission on Tuesday elected a new president who vowed to steer the panel back to "business as usual" and to work with Williams. Deirdre Hill, 34, a business lawyer, was elected 3-0 to head the commission, two of whose five members resigned to protest a June 20 City Council decision to lift the commission's reprimand of the chief.

Riordan's appointees, introduced at a packed City Hall news conference, are Rabbi Gary Greenebaum of the American Jewish Committee; security firm executive Enrique Hernandez Jr.

The embattled Los Angeles Police Department can't seem to escape controversy. Deirdre Hill, the chair of the Police Commission, is the calm in the eye of this political storm. Cool and unemotional, she refuses to allow today's headlines to detract from the commission's steady focus on reform and public safety. Hill, 35, is no stranger to politics. Mayor Richard Riordan appointed her to the commission two years ago. Her mother is state Sen. Teresa Hughes (D-Inglewood).

Three have been fired and 10 have quit. Nine have been promoted. Two have killed suspects while on duty. And one stands accused of falsifying evidence in a murder case. For most of the 44 Los Angeles Police Department officers labeled "problem officers" in the landmark 1991 Christopher Commission report, the past four years have been tumultuous. The commission said its intention was to illustrate, not define, what it called "the problem of excessive force in the LAPD."
