Replacement Chosen for Birotte
CNS--The Los Angeles Police Commission Tuesday chose Django Sibley to serve as acting inspector general following the departure of Andre Birotte.
"Mr. Sibley is a very talented professional with excellent judgment and integrity," said commission President John Mack. "He will serve the city well through this transition period in the Office of the Inspector General."
Commissioners "selected an individual for the acting position who is not applying for the permanent position, ensuring an open and fair process," according to a statement released by the commission.
Sibley joined the Office of the Inspector General in 2004 as a special investigator, and was promoted to assistant inspector general last year.
President Barack Obama appointed Birotte in December to serve as U.S. Attorney for the Central District of California, which includes Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara and Ventura counties.
The Senate confirmed his nomination last month.
