The backstory: Moore, whose term expires in June, is seeking a second five-year term. He has said, however, that he would only serve two to three years to allow time for a new chief to take office before the 2028 Olympics. Two of the five commissioners have already voiced their support, while Mayor Karen Bass — at whose pleasure the commissioners serve — has said only that she is talking to Moore about “her vision of public safety and the future of the L.A. Police Department.”

What’s next: The Commission has until the end of March to decide Moore’s fate.
