Restoring trust in the Sheriff's Department

In December, the Board of Supervisors approved the creation of a civilian oversight commission for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. The board, acting on a motion by Supervisors Mark Ridley-Thomas and Hilda L. Solis, concluded that such a body would help restore public trust and promote transparency in the department. To facilitate that goal, the board created a “work group”—led by the Office of County Counsel—to report back in 90 days on recommendations for the oversight commission’s mission, authority, size, structure and relationship to the offices of the Sheriff and Inspector General. The group includes members appointed by the Supervisors, as well as representatives of the Sheriff’s Department and Inspector General.

This page is intended to encourage public participation in the working group’s efforts by providing meeting times, agendas, news stories and relevant documents.
