Sheriff Sherman Block agreed Tuesday night to add more women to the citizens panel he appointed to investigate his department, but the panel took no action on a request that the County Board of Supervisors be allowed to appoint additional members. Earlier in the day, two supervisors had requested the right to appoint people to the sheriff's ad hoc committee in an effort to enhance the committee's credibility and independence.

Bowing to the wishes of Sheriff Sherman Block, a citizens committee agreed Monday to suspend its investigation into allegations of brutality by sheriff's officers until a judge finishes his own probe. Block created the citizens panel in September after a Board of Supervisors' hearing on allegations that his deputies use excessive force, especially against poor, inner-city minorities.

The decision by the advisory panel, whose 25 members were appointed by Block to study his embattled agency, came Monday night as the committee--with the sheriff present--established the ground rules for its unprecedented inquiry.

Civil rights attorney Gloria Allred and former U. S. ambassador to Mexico Julian Nava were selected Monday to head a citizens committee that will recommend reforms in the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. The pair were elected co-chairs by others on the 21-member panel, which was appointed by Sheriff Sherman Block two weeks ago in the wake of the Christopher Commission study of brutality in the Los Angeles Police Department and four controversial shootings of suspects by deputies.
