Lea Purwin D'Agostino and Deputy Mayor Rocky Delgadillo--held their first debate Friday, attempting to win over community leaders and jousting over the Rampart police scandal. D'Agostino, a 23-year prosecutor whose toughness earned her the nickname "Dragon Lady," ignited controversy when she said she thinks the Rampart scandal could cost as much as $1 billion in liability before its conclusion.

Los Angeles City Councilman Mike Feuer recommended Wednesday establishing a nonemergency phone number for the police and fire departments to reduce the number of 911 calls. Under his proposal, residents throughout the city would be able to dial 311 to report incidents that are not life threatening, such as barking dogs, graffiti, illegal dumping and car burglaries. The calls would be answered by an existing bank of operators who would decide the appropriate police response.

Los Angeles City Councilman Mike Feuer is leading opposition to a plan to close the West Los Angeles Jail. The Los Angeles Police Department is considering a move to shutter the facility, along with the 77th Street and North Hollywood jails, as part of an effort to streamline operations and cut costs. The closures would leave the LAPD with 10 remaining jails. But Feuer last week asked city officials to delay the plans while seeking money to keep the facility open permanently.

Los Angeles may file another appeal of a ban on seizing and destroying property that homeless people leave unattended on skid row. In a notice of appeal filed Wednesday, the city indicated that it may challenge a federal judge's refusal to modify the ban. The U.S. Supreme Court last month refused to consider a separate appeal. In its request for a modification, the city had argued that the ban was preventing authorities from cleaning up skid row. Citing a successful cleanup after the city was cited last year for health violations, U.S. District Judge Philip S. Gutierrez said, "When the city wanted to clean up, it did. " Attorney Carol Sobel, who represents eight homeless people who sued the city over the confiscations, called the city's arguments "disingenuous.
