San Jose's City Council officially named a new police chief Tuesday.

City leaders have given the nod to acting Chief Larry Esquivel. He's replacing Chief Chris Moore who retired back in January.

During Esquivel's tenure with the department, the city's gang suppression unit was resurrected and played a large part in a successful summer crackdown on gang activity.
