what big city police chief is thinking about moving to another bay area city? remembering dr. martin luther king, junior. how people around the bay area will pay tribute to the life and legacy of the slain civil rights leader. >> reporter: i'm tara moriarty live in san leandro, where police are investigating a homicide. we'll give you details and let you know how it could also affect your morning commute. and a major announcement that happened just moments ago about the future founder -- about the founder of apple, steve jobs. well, good morning. welcome to "mornings on 2." i'm dave clark. >> i'm tori campbell. it's monday, january 17th. just a short time ago,
steve jobs announced to employee that the board of directors of apple has granted him another leave of absence for medical reasons. he sent an e-mail to employees this morning saying he needs to focus on his health but he will still be involved in major strategic decisions. he says chief operating officer tim cook will be responsible for day-to-day operation, just like he did during steve jobs' medical leave. in the e-mail jobs says -- >> the news will likely lead to concern about how well jobs is doing following a liver t ransplant in 2009. we'll have more on this story coming up in the next half hour. 7:01. oakland's police chief has only been on tractor-trailer job for about a year but he -- on
tractor-trailer job for about a year -- on the job for about a year. kraig debro has more. >> reporter: i did a little research to find out what he said before he took the job. before i get to that, i want to tell you about an oakland officer who didn't have any idea this was going on. he said he couldn't believe it. the chief's chair is barely r oom. during research i was doing, here's a quote from the chief. it says, basically, "i've always taken the jobs nobody wanted hopefully this challenge isn't too overwhelming." opd confirms he's a finalist for the chief's job in san jose, three of the finalists there. now that he's applied for another job, does that mean that batts thinks the job in oakland is too overwhelming?
reports of many violent crimes across oakland have decreased dramatically. now, oakland fired batts to replace wade tucker. walker-- tucker resigned from his job in 2009. a month before that, tuck told the council he had lost faith in them and accused the body of p aying lip service to necessary reforms. we don't have any idea why the chief is considering this idea. the city of san jose probably won't decide until next month on who their next chief is. now, we do want to -- we tant to talk to him that -- when bats took over, there was 800 officers in the force, today the number is down to 657. it's a holiday down here in d owntown oakland across california. so a little difficult to get people to get reaction but we are heaping to get people and more importantly members of the oakland police department to get their reaction.
