Oakland Police Chief Howard Jordan addresses reporters April 2, 2012 in Oakland, California after a gunman allegedly killed seven people at a California religious college.
Big changes are afoot for one of California's most troubled police departments. On Thursday, Oakland police officials will release a highly anticipated report from Bill Bratton, the former Los Angeles police chief hired as a turnaround consultant. Whatever the agency does with the proposal, it will do with a new police chief.
Howard Jordan announced on Wednesday that he is stepping down on medical leave, effective immediately. City officials plan to launch a national search to find his replacement.
