Los Angeles Police Chief William Bratton Announces Promotion

Los Angeles: Los Angeles Police Chief William Bratton today announced the promotion of Captain Jose Perez to Commander. “I am always honored to be able to promote those in the LAPD who have clearly shown their commitment to excellence, their dedication to the community and to the men and women of this department,” said Chief Bratton.

Captain Perez, currently the Commanding Officer of Northeast Area, will assume the responsibilities of Department Employee Relations Administrator (ERA) for the Chief of Police. The position was vacated by Terry Hara who was recently promoted to Deputy Chief, Operations West Bureau.

Captain Perez was born in Chicago, Illinois. His career path was established while he was in second grade when he assisted a Chicago Police Officer with an investigation. While at school, his teacher was a victim of a crime. 'Little Jose' translated information between the police and a fellow Spanish speaking classmate who had witnessed the crime. The officer was very impressed with Jose. The officer spoke to him regarding a future career as a police officer.

Captain Perez was appointed to the Department in November 1983. As a Police Officer and Training Officer he worked various assignments such as patrol in Rampart and Southwest, Southwest Area Vice and Special Problems Unit, West Bureau CRASH and Detectives. As a Sergeant he was assigned to Hollenbeck Area for eleven years. Captain Perez promoted to the rank of Lieutenant in 2001. After promoting to Lieutenant he was assigned to Rampart Area Patrol, Detectives and the Gang Impact Team.

In May 2005 Perez was promoted to the rank of Captain where he was assigned to Northeast Area as Patrol Commanding Officer. He was transferred to Commanding Officer of Rampart Patrol for a time before his promotion to Captain III and his return to Northeast Area.

Captain Perez’s promotion will become effective April 1, 2008.
