LATimes: Michael Hillman to replace Rich Wemmer as Dodgers security chief

Security at Dodger Stadium remains an evolving operation.

The Dodgers said they will replace their new head of security, Rich Wemmer, on Tuesday with another former Los Angeles Police Department honcho, Michael Hillman.

Dodgers President Stan Kasten said Wemmer was retiring and the new ownership knew that coming in. Wemmer was only hired in April 2011 following the security controversy borne of the parking lot beating of Bryan Stow on opening day last spring.

Wemmer, 64, will have served as the stadium’s senior director of security for only 14 months.

“He waited for the [ownership] changeover,” Kasten said. “And we knew that coming in.”

Hillman is actually a year older than Wemmer and comes to his new position with a reputation as an intense hard-liner, who ran into trouble during his recent two-year stint at the Orange County Sheriff’s Department as the assistant sheriff. He was laid off from that position in 2010 after previously serving for 42 years with the LAPD.

Hillman was accused of police-state tactics for filling an Orange County Board of Supervisors meeting with uniformed officers in anticipation of a protest and was caught mocking supervisors via text at another meeting; he later apologized to the supervisors.
