The Glendale City Council, by a 3-2 vote, Wednesday named Alhambra Police Chief Russell Siverling as Glendale's newest chief of police. "I feel very strongly that Mr. Siverling will make an excellent chief," Mayor Larry Zarian said. Siverling, recommended for the job by Acting City Manager Bob McFall after weeks of intense debate in and out of City Hall, was one of three finalists for the position.

Simi Valley Police Chief Randy Adams will become Glendale's police chief next month, and Capt. Mark Layhew has been named as Adams' successor. As Simi Valley chief since 1995, Adams, 51, oversaw 120 officers and 66 civilian employees. In recent years, the city has consistently vied with Thousand Oaks as the nation's safest city with at least 100,000 residents. Previously, Adams served for 23 years in the Ventura Police Department, as lieutenant, captain and then assistant chief.

The Alhambra Police Department is having second thoughts about a new method of police training that last month resulted in injuries to six officers, including one who suffered concussion-like symptoms and another who broke his toe. Known as weaponless defense training and used in Alhambra for the first time last month, the method is supposed to simulate a confrontation between a suspect and a police officer. Chief Russell Siverling said he may drop the method or modify it.

For the second time this year, the city is slashing expenses of municipal agencies, including the Police and Fire departments, and increasing certain municipal fees. Following another midyear budget review, the City Council on Monday voted unanimously to approve cuts totaling $294,267 in 12 departments. Six months ago, the council slashed expenditures by $422,000 to help balance the general fund budget, which pays for services such as public works, police, fire, and the library.

Investigators in the so-called Angel of Death case said Wednesday that they plan to exhume 20 bodies in their probe of a purported mercy killer who worked as a respiratory therapist at Glendale Adventist Medical Center. Once the bodies are unearthed, investigators will search tissue samples for traces of succinylcholine chloride and Pavulon--prescription drugs that Efren Saldivar told police last year that he used to hasten the deaths of as many as 50 patients.

The U.S. Justice Department on Monday announced that it will convene a closed-door two-day meeting with 20 Los Angeles County police chiefs and 60 minority community representatives to discuss easing tensions over police use of force--but the LAPD said Chief Daryl F. Gates will not attend. "It's most likely we will be represented, but it will not be by Chief Gates," said Lt. Fred Nixon, an LAPD spokesman.

Many Armenian American residents of Glendale once lived in Yerevan, Beirut, Baghdad, and Tehran, cities not known for helpful, honest, nonthreatening police departments. Fearsome late-night knocks on the door, shakedowns and bribe-taking darkened those departments' reputations. A lingering image of corruption in uniform is one reason there are so few Armenian American officers in Glendale, according to police administrators and community leaders.
