Los Angeles Police Commission Appoints New Inspector General

"Los Angeles Police Commission Appoints New Inspector General"

 

Los Angeles: After an extensive nationwide search, the Los Angeles Police Commission unanimously selected André Birotte, Jr. as the new Inspector General for the Los Angeles Police Department. Mr. Birotte has held the position of Assistant Inspector General since April, 2001, and has served as Acting Inspector General for the past six months.

Police Commission President Rick J. Caruso stated, "André is a sharp investigator with a vast amount of experience. His knowledge of the law and analytical skills are a perfect match for the job of Inspector General. The Commission relies heavily on the Inspector General as its ‘eyes and ears’ and André has proven that he can do this job effectively."

Mr. Birotte holds an undergraduate degree from Tufts University, and a J.D. from Pepperdine University School of Law. Following law school, he became a deputy public defender in Los Angeles. He then joined the U.S. Attorney’s Office, where he prosecuted violent crime offenders as well as fraud and narcotics trafficking cases. He also has private practice experience with the law firm Quinn Emanuel Urquhart Oliver & Hedges where he practiced white collar and general commercial litigation. Mr. Birotte has held the Treasurer position for the Langston Bar Association and has served as a judge pro tem. He is recently married and resides in the City of Los Angeles.

The Inspector General reports directly the five-member Los Angeles Police Commission: President Rick J. Caruso, Vice President David S. Cunningham, III, Bert Boeckmann, II, Rose Ochi, and Silvia Saucedo. Serving as the Police Commission’s investigative arm, the Inspector General oversees the handling of complaints of officer misconduct, monitors the discipline process, conducts special investigations and projects, and fulfills the obligations created by the Department of Justice Consent Decree. The position was created in 1995 as the result of a Christopher Commission recommendation and Mr. Birotte will be the third Inspector General. The Office of the Inspector General has grown since its inception and now has a staff of 35 investigators and analysts.
