Daryl Gates


American newsmaker, a controversial figure, he was the Chief of the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) from 1978 to 1992. His length of tenure was second only to that of William H. Parker. As chief of police, he took a hardline, aggressive, paramilitary approach to law enforcement. Gates is co-credited with the creation of SWAT teams with LAPD's John Nelson, who others claim was the originator of SWAT in 1965. Gates also co-founded D.A.R.E. along with the Los Angeles Unified School District.

After the 1991 Rodney King beating and the 1992 riots afterward, Gates retired from the police department. He was attributed with much of the blame.

Gates wrote an autobiography, Chief: My Life in the LAPD (Bantam Books, 1992). The book has details about Gates's career and high-profile cases; the book went to press before the L.A. riots. Gates died on 16 April 2010 at age 83 in Dana Point, California.
