    Retired LBPD Chief Bill Ellis Named Port of LB's Interim Security Director

    (Sept. 4, 2002) -- Retired LBPD Chief Bill Ellis has been named interim director of security for the Port of LB.

    In a written release, the Port says Mr. Ellis' appointment is effective immediately. He will head the Port's "40-person Security Division during a previously announced review by an independent consultant who will make recommendations on the division's structure, authority and staffing needs in the aftermath of Sept. 11."

    Mr. Ellis served with the LBPD for 31 years, including as its Chief of Police from 1991 to 1996. Since his retirement, he has served as interim police chief for the cities of Claremont, Manhattan Beach and West Covina while they searched for permanent police chiefs.

    Mr. Ellis succeeds Robert M. Barker, who has served as the Port's director of security since 1997 and is retiring at the end of September. Mr. Barker previously served as police chief of the Santa Ana Unified School District, a special agent with the U.S. Secret Service and as a detective commanding officer with the Los Angeles Police Dept.
