Title
DISCUSS, MODIFY AND PROVIDE FURTHER DIRECTION ON ASSISTANCE TO THE LOS ANGELES COUNTY SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT WITH RESPECT TO CONDUCTING INTERVIEWS FOR THE NEXT CAPTAIN OF THE CARSON STATION

Body
I. SUMMARY

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department ("LASD") has offered the City the opportunity to participate in the process for selecting the next Captain of the Carson Sheriff Station. Jason Skeen, the previous Captain of the Carson Station has been promoted to the position of Commander.
LASD has asked that we identify four representatives of the City to serve on an interview panel alongside one representative for District 2 of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors. The unincorporated areas in District 2 are also overseen by the Carson patrol station. The panel's recommendation of a top candidate will be provided to Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva for his consideration and final decision.
At the Special City Council meeting held on December 15, the City Council unanimously appointed then Councilmember Lula Davis-Holmes, Mayor Pro Tempore Jim Dear, Councilmember Jawane Hilton, and the Chair of the Public Safety Commission to serve on the Committee. Also, the City Council expressed its interest in having the City Manager participate as a non-voting member.
This item is returning for reconsideration at the request of Mayor Lula Davis-Holmes. The City Council is asked to consider replacing the previously designated panel with all four currently seated City Councilmembers. It should be noted that having more than two City Councilmembers on the Committee will require public noticing of the meeting in accordance with the Brown Act.
