(October 26, 2004) -- Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has appointed Long Beach Police Chief Anthony Batts to the CA Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training (P.O.S.T.), which sets minimum selection and training standards for CA law enforcement.
The Governor's office provided a biographical sketch of Chief Batts which stated in pertinent part:
Batts is currently the chief of police for the Long Beach Police Department, highlighting his 22-year career in law enforcement. He previously served as deputy chief of police where he supervised the Training, Information and Technology, Jail and Communications Divisions of the department. He is a member of the California Police Chiefs Association and the Board of Directors for the National Conference for Community and Justice. Batts, 44, of Long Beach, earned a Doctorate in Public Administration from the University of La Verne, a Master of Business Management from the University of Redlands and a Bachelor of Science degree in law enforcement administration from California State University, Long Beach...
Chief Batts will serve alongside crime victim advocate Collene Campbell, sister of slain car race promoter Mickey Thompson, whom Governor Schwarzenegger reappointed to the P.O.S.T. Commission (on which she served from 1992-1998). Ms. Campbell founded the crime victim advocacy organization Memory of Victims Everywhere (MOVE) in 1989 and went on to serve on the San Juan Capistrano City Council from 1992-2002 (including periods as Mayor). She has since worked for victim-oriented legal reforms in the criminal justice system.
Also appointed to the CA P.O.S.T. Commission were Robert Doyle (Riverside County Sheriff), Deborah Linden (San Luis Obispo Police Chief) and Nelson Lum (SFPD field and training instructor).
