The End of an Era at the Los Angeles Police Commission - Police Commissioners Bid Farewell to Herb

"The End of an Era at the Los Angeles Police Commission - Police Commissioners Bid Farewell to Herbert "Bert" Boeckmann"

 

When:
Tuesday, July 15, 2003
10:30 am

Where:
Police Commission Meeting Parker Center - Police Commission Hearing Room, 150 North Los Angeles Street, Room 150, Los Angeles, CA

Who:
Commissioner Bert Boeckmann will be honored for 16 ½ years of public service by Police Commission Vice President David S. Cunningham, III, Commissioner Rose Ochi, and Commissioner Silvia Saucedo.

During his unbelievable tenure, Commissioner Boeckmann served under three Mayors and directed six Chiefs of Police. His calm demeanor and expert leadership skills have steered the LAPD through some of its best years along with some of its most challenging. Under the new Charter of the City of Los Angeles, Police Commissioners are limited to a maximum of two five-year terms. Commissioner Boeckmann has now reached the end of his term.

Reflecting on his career with the Los Angeles Police Department, Commissioner Boeckmann stated, "I have very much enjoyed serving on the Police Commission and I appreciate the confidence expressed in me by the three consecutive mayors who appointed me. I consider myself very fortunate to have served in this capacity and have always had tremendous respect and admiration for the men and women of the LAPD. They’re the best, and I will always be there in support of them."

Mayor James Hahn looked back on Commissioner Boeckmann’s years of public service, "Commissioner Boeckmann has served the people of Los Angeles and the Los Angeles Police Department over the last 16 years with a steadfast commitment to department reform and equitable police deployment throughout the city," said Mayor Jim Hahn. "Bert's professionalism and his ability to work effectively has enabled the Police Commission to become a powerful mechanism for reform and have made Los Angeles a safer city."

Instrumental in many Commission initiatives, Commissioner Boeckmann took the lead on the revision of the Department-wide system of deployment to ensure all areas of Los Angeles receive equal police response; enforcement of policy matters relative to Official Police Garages; and the creation of significant personnel policies, among many other issues.

Commissioner Boeckmann is the owner and chief executive officer of Galpin Motors, Inc. Under his leadership, Galpin Ford has achieved a record of success that is unparalleled in the retail automotive industry and constantly sets new industry standards for excellence. Commissioner Boeckmann has been honored with thousands of awards, citations, certificates, trophies and medals of honor from every private and public sector, including the nation’s highest award for entrepreneurs, The Presidential Citation for Private Sector Initiatives, recognizing voluntary public service.

Police Commission President Rick Caruso lamented, "Bert has been a guiding light for this Commission. His unending knowledge combined with his unparalleled common sense will be sorely missed by all of us."

###

Note: The Los Angeles City Council will also be honoring Commissioner Bert Boeckmann on the same morning at 10:00 am in the John Ferraro Council Chambers located in City Hall, 200 North Spring Street, Los Angeles.
