Her resignation will be effective Feb. 1, Ordin said.

Ordin, 71, said she had no immediate plans for her future. "I haven't quite decided yet," she said in an interview, adding she was focused on completing her job over the next 90 days.

"I think it was a great two years, and now it's time for new leadership," she said.

Ordin said that when she began the job, she considered the appointment to be a "shorter-term assignment."

Ordin was previously a U.S. attorney for the Central District, a California chief assistant attorney general and a member of the Christopher Commission, which proposed the historic overhaul of the Los Angeles Police Department. She was also a member of the city Police Commission.

Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich announced her resignation at Tuesday's meeting of the Board of Supervisors.
