Scott LaChasse, who has been the interim police chief in Burbank since January of 2010, got the job permanently today. In a press release this morning, Interim City Manager, Ken Pulskamp made the announcement.

“Chief LaChasse came to Burbank to offer stability to the City’s police department,” says Pulskamp. “He has done that and more, proving to me that he’s the individual most qualified to raise our police standards to the highest level and ensure they remain there.”

“I am deeply honored by this appointment as Burbank’s Chief of Police and the confidence that has been placed in me,” said Chief LaChasse in the release. “I am committed to maintaining and strengthening strong internal and external partnerships. Continuous improvement is part of our Core Values, and I plan to build on the solid progress of the past three years to move the Burbank Police Department into a permanent place of preeminence within the local law enforcement community. Also, I am grateful to work with such a talented personnel contingent and the City’s exemplary executive team.”

    This is very over due. Chief LaChasse is an honest man who has done much to improve the disfunctional police department he inherited. Change is coming to Burbank and many of our age old Golonski caused problems will begin to be resolved. I am proud as a Burbanker to have Chief LaChasse oversee our police department. Just know Chief than many of the voters of this community support you and your reforms to our police department.

    Burbanker,

    I agree. Scott LaChasse deserves to be the permanent Burbank Police Chief.

    Wow. Kudos to Pulskamp for making this move–esp before our Lame Duck David, who doubtless was infuriated by this action, waddles into the sunset.. but beware what David may yet try before the re-organization!
