As an agenda item at its regular monthly meeting held January 10, 2008, the Board of North Hollywood North East Neighborhood Council discussed the proposed Financial Disclosure Order concerning the requirement for Los Angeles Police Officers assigned to Gang and Narcotics Units to make regular and periodic financial disclosures as to their business and financial dealings, and those of their immediate families. 

The Board was advised that the police officers were unhappy with the proposed regulations and that you propose to assert control over this Special Order by transferring its jurisdiction to the City Council.  Discussion by our Board raised the issues of why just Gang and Narcotics Units should be subject to proposed disclosure rules; and the uncertainty of how any confidential information supplied by officers would be maintained by either the Police Chief or the City.

   Upon motion made by Board Member David Hernandez, seconded by Philip Manson, our Board voted unanimously (9-0) to support your transferring jurisdiction of the Financial Disclosure Program of the Police Commission to the Los Angeles City Council.    Very truly yours,  J. ERIC FREEDNERSecretary, North Hollywood North East                     Neighborhood Council  cc: Messrs. Greuel, Cardenas, Police Protective League
