Re "L.A. Badge Outshines N.Y. Flash," Commentary, Sept. 26: Former LAPD detective and current author Joseph Wambaugh would like readers to believe that if Mayor James Hahn does not select Art Lopez as the LAPD chief, a negative message would be sent to the rank and file, especially the Latinos on the force. To avoid any negative messages, Hahn needs to select the best qualified candidate regardless of ethnicity. Barry P. Resnick Orange So Wambaugh slams the outsiders?

The Los Angeles Police Department is home to 9,000 police officers, from the 39 newest graduates of the academy to veterans whose experience includes some of the best and worst times in the storied department's history. As news of the Police Commission's decision to tap three outside candidates as finalists to lead the LAPD spread Friday, the rank and file absorbed the names with reactions that often varied by tenure and rank.

There are 469 square miles in Los Angeles--and that still wasn't enough room to prevent a couple of high-profile out-of-towners from bumping into each other this week like a pair of movie stars vying for the same award on Oscar night. But these two traveled in rental cars, not limos.

As the Los Angeles Police Commission works to narrow the list of police chief candidates this week, John Timoney, an outside contender who attracted little notice at first, has caught the fancy of a number of city officials. Ever since the former Philadelphia police commissioner arrived in Los Angeles a week ago to interview for the city's top cop job, City Hall politicos have been talking about the Irish-immigrant officer, who spent most of his career in the NYPD.

Police on Wednesday were videotaped kicking and beating a suspect who had been involved in a shootout with officers minutes earlier. Mayor John F. Street promised "a proper and fair investigation." "While it would be easy to be inflamed by the videotape, we have to determine all the facts," Street said late Wednesday night. Street said that "as inflammatory as this tape might be," police had been trying to apprehend the man, who had resisted arrest and shot an officer.
