The Los Angeles Times editorial ("Pool of Police Candidates Still Deep," Sept. 17) on Los Angeles Police Department hiring did not properly characterize my views about the hiring of new LAPD officers. First, I wholeheartedly support the city's public safety plan and our efforts to hire 3,000 additional officers as quickly as possible. The city continues to aggressively recruit and train new officers to achieve this goal. Second, contrary to your editorial, I believe that asking tough questions and taking a comprehensive approach to recruiting, hiring and training does not represent a retreat from the public safety plan or from a commitment to hire more police.

The city of Los Angeles, which adopted an emergency hiring freeze in November, is likely to extend the freeze through much of this year despite optimism that layoffs will not be necessary to balance the 1991-92 budget, City Administrative Officer Keith Comrie said. Comrie, who met with Mayor Tom Bradley and a number of city department heads to study revenues in the year ahead, said early forecasts tend to confirm the $120-million budget shortfall that officials began predicting last autumn.

UC Irvine announced Tuesday it had received a $3.45-million grant over five years from the National Science Foundation to increase the hiring and retention of women professors in the sciences, engineering and the school of management. The campus is one of eight universities across the nation to receive one of the grants, and the only one in California.

Senators chided the Immigration and Naturalization Service chief Tuesday for falling short of a goal of hiring 1,000 new Border Patrol agents last year and only seeking money for 430 more next year. "What gives? Why can't we get some people employed?" Sen. Ernest F. Hollings (D-S.C.) asked INS Commissioner Doris Meissner, who oversees the Border Patrol. The patrol added 369 agents during the fiscal year that ended Sept. 30, despite a congressional directive to hire 1,000 per year.

In an abrupt reversal of an earlier decision that drew the ire of rape victim advocates, city officials have cleared the way for the Los Angeles Police Department's crime lab to hire more staff capable of DNA analysis. The about-face amounts to a belated attempt by Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and City Council members to salvage a city plan to eliminate a backlog of untested DNA evidence from rape cases and to prevent a new one from piling up. Despite the renewed commitment to hire more DNA analysts, the bureaucratic wrangling has pushed back the city's initial timetable for eliminating the backlog.

Southern California's aerospace industry was criticized sharply by a Congressional committee Monday for failing to hire and promote more black and Latino workers. A report issued by the House Education and Labor Committee said the proportion of those two minorities in the industry's work force "remained relatively unchanged or worsened" between 1980 and 1986.

The Pasadena City Council froze as many as 100 positions so it could open the Blair High School pool for the summer, add an anti-gang program and offer more summer jobs to young people. The new programs were added to the city's $114-million budget, which was passed last week. In addition to a hiring freeze, the council voted to dip into reserves in order to balance the budget. City Manager Philip A. Hawkey said that the city staff is overworked because of unfilled spots.
