The New Chief: What's Going to Change at the LAPD
Listen to/Watch entire show:
Last night at the Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills, the police chief designate of Los Angeles, Willie Williams gave his first major public address before the annual dinner meeting of the American Jewish Committee. We hear that speech in its entirety. We then speak with George Hofstetter, a 25-year veteran of the LAPD. He's gong to retire on June 27, the same day that Chief Darryl Gates is expected to step down. We also speak with Joseph Wambaugh, one of America’s best known and most successful novelists, and a man who has gained worldwide fame for writing books about the LAPD, where he served for fourteen years.
Which Way L.A.? is made possible in part by the Ralph M. Parsons Foundation, the Rosalinde and Arthur Gilbert Foundation, the Nathan Cummings Foundation, and the John Randolph Haynes and Dora Haynes Foundation, which supports study and research into policy issues of the Los Angeles region.
