Police Commission Selects New Inspector General

Los Angeles – Today, the members of the Police Commission announced their selection for a new Inspector General. Ms. Nicole Bershon, who currently serves as an Assistant Inspector General, was selected for the post.  Police Commission President John W. Mack stated, “Ms. Bershon was an outstanding candidate among a group of very talented individuals.  I am confident that she will build upon the foundation laid by André Birotte and her other predecessors who have ensured 21st century policing, transparency and accountability at the Los Angeles Police Department.”

Nicole Bershon holds an undergraduate degree from Princeton University and a J.D. from the UCLA School of Law. While in law school, she co-founded the UCLA Women's Law Journal and served as its Co-Editor in Chief during her third year. Following law school, she joined the law firm of Stutman, Treister & Glatt, a bankruptcy boutique, where she represented mostly corporate debtors in Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings and out-of-court work-outs. She then joined the law firm of Irell & Manella where she worked on civil litigation and white collar criminal defense matters. She left private practice to join the Los Angeles City Attorney's Office where she spent five years in the criminal side of the office, prosecuting a variety of misdemeanors, including domestic violence matters, narcotics offenses, and gang-related crimes. She then spent over a year in the Police Division of the City Attorney's Office, representing the Los Angeles Police Department and individual officers, first in connection with Pitchess requests for peace officer personnel records, and later in connection with civil litigation matters.  In 2002, she became an Assistant Inspector General with the Office of the Inspector General.  Ms. Bershon currently heads the Complaint Intake and Review Section, however she has also led others sections and is well-versed in all responsibilities of the Office of the Inspector General.

Ms. Bershon will serve as the fifth Inspector General for the Los Angeles Police Commission.  Preceding her are André Birotte Jr., Jeff Eglash, Deirdre Hill, and Katherine Mader.
