As chief of the San Fernando Police Department, Robert Ordelheide cherishes simplicity. He can learn about a problem, choose a plan of attack and see specific results right before his eyes -- sometimes all in the same day. Life with a department composed of 38 officers and 32 civilian personnel feels right to him, especially with the massively complex LAPD right next door. "It's so small here that you know who you're dealing with and not fighting a lot of bureaucracy," he said.

The San Fernando City Council this week proposed a truancy ordinance to dissuade students from cutting classes and loitering around town. Police said the ordinance is necessary because the city of San Fernando has become known as a "free zone"--an area where truants believe they can hang out without getting caught. "The problem is that we run into kids from other schools [outside San Fernando] coming into our city and thinking it's safe [to be truant in]," said Sgt.
