There is a lot going on regarding the Los Angeles Police Department's corruption scandal. The City Council awaits Mayor Richard Riordan's signature on a federal consent decree that will govern sweeping reforms and appoint an outside monitor to ensure they are accomplished. The council is also set to approve Rampart-related legal settlements that will bring the direct payouts by taxpayers to about $13 million.

Dealing yet another setback to the Los Angeles subway project, the Police Commission on Tuesday ordered a halt to nighttime work at a Metro Rail construction site in Hollywood in response to neighbors' complaints about noise. The commission also issued a stinging rebuke of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority and its contractor for their "self-serving attitude" toward neighbors of the construction site.

In his last race for mayor of Los Angeles, Tom Bradley forged a winning coalition that involved little in the way of significant electoral help from the San Fernando Valley. The fallout from that was predictable. Although Valley residents accounted for slightly more than one-third of the population of Los Angeles, they made up less than 20% of the membership of Bradley's city commissions during his last term.

The Los Angeles Police Commission refused Tuesday to grant a Times request for information about the number of false alarms at the homes and offices of Mayor James K. Hahn and the 15 City Council members. Citing security concerns, the five-member civilian panel said it would not overrule Police Chief William J. Bratton's decision to withhold the information. "There's a higher obligation and responsibility for the protection of public officials today," said commission President Rick Caruso.

Los Angeles Police Chief Willie L. Williams has reimbursed a London company nearly $11,000 for a pair of first-class airplane tickets that he accepted 15 months ago to attend a conference in Europe, officials said Tuesday. Williams' acceptance of the tickets--used by him and his wife--had sparked questions about whether he violated state ethics rules and prompted an investigation by the Fair Political Practices Commission.

The Los Angeles Police Commission on Tuesday joined the chorus of groups and government bodies on record against Proposition 187, voting to oppose the hotly disputed ballot initiative that would deny public schooling and most tax-supported health care and other benefits to illegal immigrants. Enrique Hernandez Jr., president of the commission, called the proposal "immoral" in voicing his opposition.

Los Angeles Mayor-elect Eric Garcetti is taking his power-to-the-people pitch to Sunday's inauguration festivities, planning an event that includes Steampunk carnival games, multi-culti music and an oath of office administered by the 13-year-old daughter of a janitor. Hollywood, a major backer of Garcetti's campaign, will also be on hand. Jimmy Kimmel is emceeing, and techno master Moby, accompanied by a choir, will kick off the event with a song. For the most part, though, Garcetti has planned a ceremony with little pomp followed by a free public party in downtown's Grand Park.
