Nicole Bershon chosen new LAPD inspector general

Here is Mayor Villaraigosa's statement:

"I want to commend the Police Commission for their selection of Nicole Bershon as the new Inspector General. Her experience as a proven prosecutor and dedicated service in the Inspector General's Office, undoubtedly makes her the right candidate to build on the foundation and legacy of reform left by her predecessors.

Her unique qualifications will ensure the LAPD continues to be held to the highest standards of integrity and service.

I am confident Ms. Bershon will continue to serve with the steadfast commitment that has characterized her tenure at the Office of the Inspector General."

Bershon has been the Assistant Inspector General since 2002. She formerly worked in the City Attorney's office and at Irell & Manella.

Also today: Villaraigosa appointed labor advocate Steve Nutter to the Board of Public Works Commission.
