Mayor Eric Garcetti has nominated attorney and former California Coastal Commission member Cynthia McClain-Hill to the Los Angeles Police Commission.

If confirmed by the City Council, McClain-Hill would replace Robert Saltzman, who is termed out after this week, according to mayoral aide Carl Marziali. McClain-Hill’s term would run until June 30, 2021.

Garcetti described McClain-Hill as a “respected attorney, whoseimpressive record of service— including at the city’s Community Redevelopment Agency, on the California Coastal Commission and as a leader in the National Association of Women Business Owners—will bring valuable experience to the Police Commission.”

“She is an independent thinker with a sharp and analytical mind, and shares my vision for an LAPD that fully embraces the demands of 21st century policing and gives officers the steady support they need to keep our streets safe,” he said.
