• Sheriff Lee Baca’s Retirement Announcement


    Earlier today, Sheriff Lee Baca, of San Marino, released a retirement announcement. Its contents are included below:

    I have been proud and honored to serve the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and the people of Los Angeles County for the past 48 years – which has made this decision the most difficult of my professional life.

    I am not going to seek re-election to a fifth term as Sheriff, and I will retire at the end of this month.

    The reasons for doing so are many, and some are most personal and private, but the prevailing one is the negative perception this upcoming campaign has brought to the exemplary service provided by the men and women of the Sheriff’s Department. They have conducted themselves with the utmost integrity and professionalism, resulting in yet another year of historic crime reductions not seen in nearly half-a-century.

    Your Sheriff’s Department is the greatest law enforcement agency in the nation, and I want to thank the men and women of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department for their hard work, dedication, and sacrifice exhibited daily.

    To the people of Los Angeles County, I also extend a deep sense of gratitude for allowing me to serve for the past 48 years.

    As your elected Sheriff for the past 15 years, I have held fast to the Core Values of this great department.

    And they are:

    “As a leader of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, I commit myself to perform my duties with respect for the dignity of all people, integrity to do right and fight wrongs, wisdom to apply common sense and fairness in all I do, and courage to stand against racism, sexism, anti-Semitism, homophobia, and bigotry in all its forms.”

    Sheriff Lee Baca
