Los Angeles – JAMS, the leading provider of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) services worldwide, is pleased to announce Hon. Carlos R. Moreno (Ret.) and Hon. Jay C. Gandhi (Ret.) were appointed by Mayor Eric Garcetti to the Los Angeles Police Commission’s Advisory Committee on Building Trust and Equity.
The committee is an esteemed collection of policy specialists, legal experts and community leaders who will assist the Los Angeles Police Commission in conducting a comprehensive review of Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) policies and procedures, and deliver recommendations for additional reforms. With nearly 10,000 officers, the LAPD is the third-largest municipal police department in the United States.
In response to the protests following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, the committee aims to improve public safety, build police-community trust, increase transparency and enhance accountability within the LAPD.
Justice Moreno and Judge Gandhi will focus on accountability and discipline within the LAPD; assess current policing reform proposals; evaluate the implementation of past reform proposals; and examine the department’s recruitment, hiring, retention and training processes.
We are proud that Justice Moreno and Judge Gandhi, two of our most successful neutrals, continue to give back to the community and will devote their talents to advance meaningful change during these challenging times.
- Chris Poole, JAMS President and CEO.
Justice Moreno and Judge Gandhi have been recognized for their deep commitment to equality and justice.
Justice Moreno came to JAMS after a 25-year career at the highest levels of government, including as an ambassador of the United States and a justice of the Supreme Court of California. At the time of his appointment, he was only the third judge of Hispanic heritage to serve on the Supreme Court of California.
Judge Gandhi joined JAMS after having served as a U.S. magistrate judge for the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, the nation’s largest federal court, and as a former partner of the international law firm of Paul Hastings LLP. At the time of his appointment in 2010, Judge Gandhi was not only the first South Asian-American federal judge in California history, but at the age of 38, he was one of the youngest federal judges in the country.
