Jeffrey C Eglash

OPINION
February 26, 2003
Former Los Angeles Police Department watchdog Jeffrey C. Eglash advised the city's Police Commission, as it searches for his replacement, to "announce firmly and loudly that it supports having an independent inspector general." That was Monday. Police Commission President Rick Caruso wasted less than a day thinking about it before sending exactly the opposite message. He griped Tuesday that it was "bad form" for Eglash to make recommendations to a City Council committee, not the commission.

Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa appointed a former federal civil rights prosecutor as his deputy mayor for homeland security and public safety, one of five top posts filled Monday as he continues to round out his staff. In addition to naming Maurice Suh to the public safety job, Villaraigosa tapped City Hall outsiders as deputy mayors for communications; energy and the environment; and legislative affairs.

Fourteen years after she was convicted of what may still be the largest welfare fraud in history, Dorothy Mae Woods was arrested Thursday on suspicion of another scheme to defraud the government--this time for allegedly garnering $89,000 in bogus tax refunds.

Seven Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies, accused of skimming more than $1.4 million during narcotics raids, were portrayed by a prosecutor Tuesday as corrupt officers who "turned the war on drugs into their own personal piggy banks" and used stolen drug cash for spending sprees. The officers--who worked together on an elite narcotics investigation team--stole huge sums of money from drug traffickers and money launderers to finance cars, boats, vacation homes and other luxuries, Assistant U.

There's a question about which issue stands first these days in the mind of Los Angeles Police Department Chief Bernard C. Parks. Is it the scandal over bad cops in the LAPD, which now extends beyond the Rampart division to include other police stations and allegations of drug trafficking and use of prostitutes? Or is the chief preoccupied with internal LAPD politics over limiting the investigative authority of the inspector general?

The Rampart police corruption investigation has arisen from a premature death. Los Angeles County Dist. Atty. Steve Cooley reversed course after closing the book last month on the unfinished probe. His office will look at 60 additional cops referred by the Los Angeles Police Department, and criminal charges may be forthcoming.

Saying they want to empower their civilian watchdog, Los Angeles Police Commission members Tuesday approved a set of "work rules" by which their inspector general is supposed to operate. The rules, a significantly revised version of those that the commissioners took under consideration last week, define the inspector general's access to information and his ability to provide confidentiality to complainants, issues that have been hotly contested for three years.

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.

The Los Angeles City Council has made a dramatic and commendable shift toward real civilian control of the Police Department. For all the years of talk about police accountability to the public, the pending federal oversight of the LAPD holds the expectation that such talk will become action. Of course, this sort of shift has happened before, most notably after the Christopher Commission report of 1991, only to be buried by the culture of the LAPD.

Chief of Police Bernard C. Parks--under the gun for last year's jump in homicides, his handling of the Rampart Division investigation and dissatisfaction among rank-and-file officers for his refusal to back a compressed work schedule--held a town hall meeting with west San Fernando Valley residents Thursday evening. Parks was warmly greeted at Taft High School by about 150 people who expressed concerns ranging from unsolved murders to cars racing through residential streets.
