The search for Los Angeles' next police chief is unlikely to be completed before the LAPD's outgoing leader, William J. Bratton, departs at the end of October, according to the schedule laid out by city officials overseeing the process. The expected timeline means it is likely that Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa will be forced to appoint an interim chief -- a move he has said he is loath to make -- or leave the department without a head for a few weeks. That realization comes as the field of internal LAPD candidates planning to compete for the job widens significantly.

Earl Paysinger doesn't mince words when talking about the 57 square miles of urban landscape he oversees as a Los Angeles Police Department assistant chief. "It's a violent piece of real estate," the 30-year LAPD veteran said. "This part of the city has always been a great challenge for us."

There's nothing about Earl Paysinger's appearance that gives away what he has seen the last 30 years. His eyes are clear, his shoulders square, and he looks impossibly healthy for someone whose navigational reference points are the scenes of homicides. Too many times in a three-decade LAPD career, Paysinger has driven home to Long Beach in early-morning darkness, the smell of death still sharp in his nostrils.

In another major restructuring of his command staff, Los Angeles Police Chief Bernard C. Parks on Thursday assigned more than two dozen top officers to new jobs and promoted a number of others. "This was done to make the department a little bit leaner and a little bit more efficient," said Deputy Chief Martin Pomeroy, publicly announcing the changes for Parks, who was out of town.

In a week when winter storms caused widespread devastation, there was one bright spot: The rains seem to have put a damper on crime. Violent crime last week -- when it rained for four of seven days -- was down 23% in Los Angeles and property crime dropped by a quarter compared to the same week last year. Police and social scientists were not surprised, saying that they have long known that weather affects criminal behavior.

A 6-year-old boy was shot in the head in South Los Angeles and taken to a hospital Sunday night, police said. The boy was struck by a bullet from a passing car near East 87th Place and Avalon Boulevard shortly before 8 p.m. He was sitting in a white SUV with his parents and two brothers when the assailants drove past and began shooting, police said. As they drove off, a man across the street came out of his house and fired several shots from an AK-47 at the fleeing assailants, police said.

Police Chief William J. Bratton said Monday he is putting the finishing touches on a plan to reverse the recent increases in gang-related crime in Los Angeles. Gang crime climbed 14% last year. The chief testified before a City Council panel Monday that he and Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa would announce a plan Thursday to crack down on the 10 to 20 worst gangs in the city. "The initiative would include a cooperative effort with federal and local law enforcement and prosecutors," Bratton said.
