After being a finalist for LAPD chief in 2009 only to see the job go to Charlie Beck, Michel Moore has been selected to succeed Beck by L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti.

Moore, a 37-year veteran of the force, runs the LAPD's day-to-day patrol operations as first assistant chief, the number two at the department behind Beck, who's stepping down June 27. Moore, 54, has held nearly every top job at the department, overseeing everything from the budget to personnel to special operations.
