Chief to Mayor Yorty: Officer “soiled his own nest”

This memo to May­or Sam Yorty talks about Lt. Hank Hernan­dez as a pos­sible de­part­ment li­ais­on to the city’s grow­ing Mex­ic­an-Amer­ic­an com­munity. Hernan­dez, who worked at the Hol­len­beck sta­tion in Boyle Heights, was highly re­garded in the com­munity, the memo notes. The li­ais­on po­s­i­tion was ref­er­enced in Ruben Salaz­ar’s March 13 column about Chief Dav­is’ meet­ing with Latino re­port­ers. The re­port­ers had pressed the chief to ap­point a li­ais­on.
