Mayor Gavin Newsom yesterday announced that Alan Nance, currently
the assistant chief probation officer for the Department of Juvenile
Probation, will replace Murlene Randle as acting director of the
Mayor's Office of Criminal Justice (MOCJ).
A nationwide search will be conducted to find a permanent director.
Acting Director Nance has 20 years experience in working in -

implementation of a new juvenile risk assessment and case plan
system as well as a series of best-practices designed to evaluate
job performance and create accountability by measuring outcomes.
Newsom called Nance "a wise choice in a time of transition,"
noting that the"MOCJ is a vital component of our community
policing strategy - juvenile justice and improved youth services
are essential if we are to succeed in that effort.
Outgoing director, Murlene Randle, is moving to the Department
of Human Resources where she will be assisting in managing labor
