Students, professors, SBS faculty, alumni and community members were in attendance to hear them speak.
“We’re trying to build trust externally [with the community],” said Moore, who succeeded former Chief Charlie Beck as the LAPD’s 57th chief. Moore joined the department as a 21-year-old in 1981. “We’re in a pretty good spot, but we can get better. Partly, it’s listening. Partly, it’s giving people a voice — and feeling that they have a say. As a chief, I intend to be an honest and transparent person.
The Oct.10th program at CSUN was moderated by CSUN alumnus Josh Rubenstein.
