Local News in Brief : Former Police Board Chief Back on Panel

Former Los Angeles Police Commission President Reva B. Tooley has returned to the commission as the replacement for Barbara L. Schlei, a labor lawyer who submitted her resignation after serving a four-year term.

Tooley, appointed to the job by Mayor Tom Bradley and approved by the City Council, gained a reputation as a critic of Police Chief Daryl F. Gates before leaving the Police Commission in 1984 to work first as an editor at the Los Angeles Herald Examiner and later as a free-lance writer. Schlei, who has been serving as the commission’s vice president, was Tooley’s replacement four years ago.
