Retired Torrance police chief and interim Redondo Beach police Chief John J. Neu is set to begin his new post Nov. 1 as chief of the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Bureau of Investigation, it was announced Monday.District Attorney Jackie Lacey said Neu would succeed Dominick Rivetti, a retired San Fernando police chief who is retiring Aug. 1 after 14 years with the District Attorney’s Office.
Neu began his law enforcement career with the Pasadena Police Department and transferred to the Torrance force in 1985. He was Torrance’s police chief from 2006 to 2014.
“John is an innovative leader in law enforcement,” Lacey said. “He will bring valuable experience to this office as we continue to confront increasingly sophisticated high-technology frauds and other crimes that affect the quality of life in Los Angeles County.”
Kris C. Carter, a captain in the District Attorney’s Bureau of Investigation, was named the bureau’s assistant chief.
She replaces George Mueller, who will become the deputy commissioner of the California Department of Insurance’s Enforcement Branch.
Carter will serve as interim chief until Neu is sworn into his post.
The bureau — the county’s fourth-largest law enforcement agency — employs nearly 300 peace officers.
