Michel Moore, the Los Angeles Police Department’s First Assistant Chief and a Santa Clarita resident, is one of three finalists in the search for a new LAPD chief.

Moore, a 35-year veteran of the LAPD, along with LAPD Deputy Chief Robert Arcos and San Francisco Police Chief Bill Scott, also an LAPD veteran, were chosen from a field of 31 applicants by the city’s civilian Police Commission to replace outgoing LAPD Chief Charlie Beck.

L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti is expected to name one of the three candidates as the new chief before Beck retires on June 27.

Moore told the Los Angeles Times he planned to move to L.A. if he was named to the post.

Here’s Moore’s LAPD profile:

He was born the second of five children in Porterville, California, and grew up in various parts of the United States, graduating high school in Conway, Arkansas. He returned to Southern California in 1978 and joined the Los Angeles Police Department in 1981.

Assistant Chief Moore rose through the ranks of police officer, detective, sergeant, and lieutenant working various patrol, investigative, and administrative assignments throughout the city.

Assistant Chief Moore was promoted to the rank of Captain in 1998 and his assignments included assuming command at Rampart Area following the arrest of Rafael Perez and during the 2000 Democratic National Convention.

Upon his promotion to Commander in 2002, his assignments were at Operations-Valley Bureau and later the Assistant to the Director, Office of Operations.

In 2004, he was promoted to Deputy Chief and assumed the command of Operations-West Bureau, later transferring to Operations-Valley Bureau in 2005.

In 2010, he promoted to Assistant Chief and was assigned as Director, Office of Special Operations. In that position, Assistant Chief Moore oversaw Detective Bureau and Counter-Terrorism and Special Operations Bureau, as well as Citywide Jail, Property and Security Services operations.

In 2015, Assistant Chief Moore was assigned as Director, Office of Administrative Services. In that position, he oversaw the Department’s fiscal, personnel, training and various support operations including the Department’s command center, communications and records management.

He was also the Chair of the Department’s Use of Force Review Board which evaluates all Categorical Uses of Force, including deadly force and hospitalizations.

Most recently, Assistant Chief Moore became the First Assistant Chief and was assigned as Director, Office of Operations. In that position, he oversees the Department’s geographic bureaus and patrol divisions which provide uniformed and investigative services within the City of Los Angeles.

In addition, Assistant Chief Moore directs the Department’s COMPSTAT process, including weekly command inspections.

Assistant Chief Moore attended the University of Redlands, completing a Bachelors of Science in Business and Management in 1993 and a Masters of Business Administration in 1999.

He is also a graduate of the Police Executive Research Forum, the Senior Management Institute for Police, the Supervisory Leadership Institute, and the West Point Leadership program.

Assistant Chief Moore has completed advanced coursework in emergency management, counter-terrorism, and process improvement. He has received numerous commendations and awards for his police service including the Department’s Medal of Valor, the Police Medal, the Police Star, and the Meritorious Service Medal.

Assistant Chief Moore is a Director for the Los Angeles Police Federal Credit Union, Immediate Past President of the Los Angeles County Peace Officers Association, First Vice President of the Los Angeles Police Memorial Association and Council Member of the
Southern California Law Enforcement Torch Run for the Special Olympics.

He is a member of various professional organizations including the Police Executive Research Forum, the Latin American Law Enforcement Association, the Los Angeles Women Peace Officers and Associates Organization, and the International Association of Chiefs of Police.

Assistant Chief Moore strives to promote a community policing style of leadership that stresses intelligent, partnership-oriented strategies involving community stakeholders, as well as various members of the criminal justice system.
