Dodgers Choose Former LAPD Capt. As Security Chief

April 27, 2011  | 

To address fan violence outside the stadium, the Los Angeles Dodgers chose former LAPD Capt. Rich Wemmer as security chief.

The team must gain approval from Major League Baseball to hire the former LAPD captain under the terms of the takeover by the commissioner's office last week.

Wemmer retired from the LAPD in 2008 after nearly 40 years in law enforcement. He was a commanding officer for the Rampart and Northeast patrol divisions and training divisions, as well as the Van Nuys, West Los Angeles and Wilshire-area stations.

He also served as the officer-in-charge of the anti-terrorist division's investigative unit during the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles.
