[KHTS] – Longtime Santa Clarita Valley resident Dominick Rivetti is scheduled to appear before the Beverly Hills City Council on Tuesday to authorize an employment agreement to serve as interim police chief.
If approved, Rivetti will take over in Beverly Hills following his Aug. 1 retirement from the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office after 14 years of service, including nine years as chief of the Bureau of Investigation.
Before taking the DA post, he had retired from the San Fernando Police Department where he served 31 years, including the last 15 years as chief. He has a combined 45 years of law enforcement experience.
“Chief Rivetti is the ideal person to guide the Beverly Hills Police Department through this transition,” said Mayor Julian Gold. “He has decades of experience and is well known for his ability to work with diverse groups and find common ground.”
Beverly Hills officials said Rivetti is filling in and won’t be in the running for the permanent chief position.
Chief Rivetti will begin the process of implementing recommendations in a recent management report and survey of the Beverly Hills Police Department, officials said in a statement. The report made 23 recommendations to improve the effectiveness of the Police Department’s hiring and disciplinary procedures. The recommendations incorporate areas such as recruitment, promotions, the disciplinary process, communication and team building.
Rivetti replaces Chief David Snowden, who retired June 13 after 11 years of service in Beverly Hills.
