"From my first day as Sheriff, I have sought to set a clear tone underscoring that the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department is accountable to those we protect and serve and that we must hold ourselves to the highest standards of integrity and constitutional policing. We must continuously earn the trust of our community. This starting point, and my abiding commitment to partnering with our County's rich and diverse community, has been a guide post for me throughout my decades in law enforcement."
- A message from Sheriff Jim McDonnell
The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department believes in being forthcoming regarding our activities and policing efforts. Transparency allows honest analysis related to the quality of our work and builds trust within the communities we serve. This approach also opens up dialogue to ensure certain concerns, crime trends, and needed corrective action is being applied in a fair and impartial manner.
