The "9-Oh," as the raucous college bar is affectionately known, is where inhibitions, like IDs, are checked at the door. For one fraternity--the prestigious and well-connected Alpha Tau Omega house--it is a path well traveled.

Deputy Chief William Rathburn was among more than 100 candidates who applied for the job after the September firing of Chief Mack Vines by City Manager Jan Hart.

Seeking to ensure the safety of schoolchildren, the City Council on Wednesday approved a plan to boost police patrols on streets surrounding schools in gang-plagued neighborhoods in Watts. City Councilman Zev Yaroslavsky said the stepped-up patrols, which will cost $150,000 through the end of the school year, would help "create an environment in which young people who want to get an education can do so without taking their lives in their hands."

Jesse A. Brewer became a cop when the Los Angeles Police Department was primarily a white male bastion, and black officers had to prove more than their knowledge of law enforcement to succeed. In spite of the hurdles, and a few hurts, Brewer rose to become assistant chief, the No. 2 person in the large department. His decision to retire will leave a vacuum in the department, and in the city.
