Enhancing Law Enforcement in Los Angeles County

Statement by Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas On the Election of the Los Angeles County Sheriff

“We wish outgoing Sheriff Jim McDonnell all the best in his future endeavors, and welcome Sheriff-elect Alex Villanueva in his new role. While we have made some important strides in oversight and criminal justice reform, much remains to be done to enhance law enforcement in Los Angeles County for department employees – both sworn and civilian – and for the community at large.”
