Officer Hank Stockdale of the Los Angeles Police Department is paid from a $4-million federal grant designed to help bring peace to urban war zones. But the price of the framed picture of John Wayne--so far the only decoration in his week-old Pacoima office--came out of his own pocket. "I have no illusions about being the new sheriff in town," said Stockdale, a 6-foot, 200-pound mustachioed blond who nonetheless looks and acts the part. "But if I can make a difference, then I'm 100% successful."
