OAKLAND, Calif. — Interim Police Chief Howard Jordan was sworn into the office Thursday for the second time in less than three years.

Jordan, a 23-year veteran of the Oakland Police Department, will replace outgoing Chief Anthony Batts, who announced his resignation Tuesday. Jordan had been the department's second-in-command for several years and previously served as interim chief in the seven months before Batts took office in October 2009. He now commands a department that is chronically understaffed, and has been threatened with a federal takeover if it doesn't make significant reforms by January.
