L.A. Police Chief Says He Wants a Second Term

April 04, 2014  | 

Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck declared Thursday his interest in serving a second term as the city's top cop, saying he would be "more than proud" to serve should officials make the offer, reports the L.A. Times.

Speaking at the LAPD’s downtown headquarters, Beck told reporters he had conveyed that desire to Mayor Eric Garcetti and the Los Angeles Police Commission, who are about to begin an extensive review of the chief’s performance to decide whether to offer him a second five-year term.

Although Beck has generally received high marks for his performance as chief, he brushed off the idea that a second term would be a "slam dunk."

"I’m proud of my performance as chief. I’m proud of what the Los Angeles Police Department has done. I’m proud of what it has become," he continued. "But to me, it’s not a slam dunk. This is a mayor that wants to take this city in a very specific and new direction."
