Did you know that the Los Angeles County Sheriff is an elected official? The sheriff holds a tremendous amount of power with responsibilities such as providing patrol services for 153 incorporated communities and 42 cities; courthouse security for the Superior Court of LA; and housing and transportation of 17,000 people who are incarcerated in its jail system, which is the largest in the country.
We are hosting a community forum so you can better know your sheriff candidates:
